Long Way Down: The Graphic Novel by Jason Reynolds and Danica Novgorodoff

Long Way Down: The Graphic Novel by Jason Reynolds and Danica Novgorodoff

As my regular readers know, I make an effort to feature POC authors on the blog regularly. Still, since this month is Black History Month, I figure there’s no harm in putting a little extra spotlight on some recent books by Black authors. Here’s the first feature: a review of the graphic novel version of Long Way Down, which I was very excited to get my hands on! I absolutely loved Long Way Down when I read […]

Cub by Cindy Copeland: Graphic Novel Review

Cub by Cindy Copeland: Graphic Novel Review

I’m guessing this graphic novel will be a big hit with middle graders! It’s perfect for fans of Raina Telgemeier’s books because it’s very similar to her books in style (and some of the themes). I especially loved that Copeland included empowering messages about young girls without hitting us over the head with them. She shows the ways that she was treated unequally without having a graphic novel that constantly decries those injustices. For instance, there was […]
