For the Love of Graphic Novels

My students love graphic novels! Many of the graphic novels I own are among the most widely read and borrowed books. There are a few series that are so popular that students repeatedly ask when the next book will be available. The latest installments in some of these series have recently been published and students are over-the-moon excited to read them. 

Graphic Novel Favorites....

Bird & Squirrel All Tangled Up (Bird & Squirrel #5) by James Burks

Bird and Squirrel are hilarious. Their adventures highly amuse my middle grade readers. Bird, Squirrel, and Birdie are on a mission to find Bigfoot. With lots of action and humor, this latest book is just as great as the previous titles in the series. It also explores the relationship between child and parent.

Hilo Book 5: Then Everything Went Wrong by Judd Winick

Even the most reluctant of readers fall in love with Hilo. In this book, D. J. and Hilo have gone to Hilo's planet, Jannus, to get some answers about his past. Hilo's sister, Izzy, and Gina are left back on Earth and must make sure that no one finds out D. J. and Hilo are gone. As Hilo learns more about his past, everything is not what it seems. This series continues to be funny and action-packed. Every book, including this one, leaves the reader wanting to know more.

Mystery Club (Mr. Wolf's Class #2) by Aron Nels Steinke

Students really enjoyed the first book in the Mr. Wolf's Class series. The students in Mr. Wolf's fourth grade class are a variety of animals, but, aside from that, they are very true-to-life. They behave in much the same was as students do and have the same sense of humor. In this book, some of the students form a mystery club and want to find out what happened to a former teacher. This is a fun and delightful read.

Each one of these books are titles that my students have been eagerly awaiting. They were scooped up by students as soon as I brought them into school and I have not seen them since. I hope, as do my students, that the authors keep the series going!
