Abstract
Graphic novels tell the stories, star the heroes (real and fictional), and address the issues relevant to youngsters and tweens in a style that holds their interest and keeps them coming back for more! More than merely comic books—and not always rated “PG”—they have an important educational component as well.
This must-have resource on developing your collection of this important format will give you a wealth of tips and practical advice about buying, recommending, cataloging, and shelving. Youth services specialist David Serchay shares the insights of librarians, media specialists, and vendors around the country about how best to build and manage graphic novel collections. You’ll find this guide’s annotated list of highly recommended titles invaluable.
