The hesitation behind embracing GNs has lifted steadily over the past years. Many have regarded them as comics or magazines despite the ever growing amount of titles that appear in this format. While people will have valid concerns about GNs being integrated into libraries, schools and personal bookshelves I personally think that they’re a great bonus. If I put it down simply… You teach a child to read with picture books, why wouldn’t you do the same with an adult?… I know I have boiled it down to a very simplistic view, and GNs are not just for those who are struggling to read, but I think they are one of our greatest tools to help develop happy confident readers. more “Graphic Novels”

Who’s at the door?

 

I have never studied An Inspector Calls so I thought that reading this quick text graphic novel would give me a good introduction to the full text. On first glance I like the style of this series. As well as the story, you get a biography of the author at the end and a piece on page creation that gives you great insight into how a graphic novel is produced. more “Review: An Inspector Calls, Graphic Novel”
