Graphic Novels
Our library has a large range of graphic novels available for students to borrow, often known as comics. These are very popular and are a great source of literature for all students.
'The most popular and best-selling comics foryoung readers today are Raina Telgemeier's humorous and heart warming slice-of-life graphic novels, where she shares some of her life struggles, and Dave Pilkey's Dog Man. As an English teacher noted, among all the fun and silliness of Dog Man: Lord of the Fleas, one page featured the words 'shun','redundancy', 'eschew', 'reiteration', and recapitulation'.' 
If you see your child reading one of these very popular books, they are a perfect blend of the written word and visual narrative - with the added bonus that readers are in complete control of the experience - that makes comics incredibly rich and complex texts.
