Three great graphic novels

3 Apr

Magic in books ❤


Recently I stumbled across a brilliant page on the Booktrust site. It’s all about graphic novels and there are links to booklists and articles, plus a graphic short story by Hannah Berry, a writer-in-residence at Booktrust. (Read the Booktrust graphic novel guide.)

I enjoy graphic novels, graphic memoirs and comics of all kinds, and I wanted to introduce three books that I’ve particularly loved during the past year or so. These are all highly recommended to Girls Heart Books readers!

1) Tomboy by Liz PrinceTomboyTomboy by Liz Prince website

Recommended to ages teen plus, and especially to anyone who’s ever wondered why we’re supposed to fit into certain boxes, looking and behaving in a particular way because of the expectations of people around us. This is a light-hearted and thought-provoking memoir that examines what it means to be ‘a girl’.

2) Smile by Raina Telgemeier, Sisters by Raina Telgemeier and Drama by Raina Telgemeier
