Hey there! Here's a new category in the :01 blog: YOUNG READERS CORNER! Brought on by popular demand, from the many librarians, booksellers, educators and parents begging for a list of "graphic novels' for ages 6 and up...
So YOUNG READERS CORNER will include highly recommended quality comics, and before long, it should be VERY OBVIOUS there's plenty of material out there to make a hoppin', happenin' section for the picture book set in every bookstore, library, classroom and children's room!
And you, cherished visitor, if you know of a MUST-HAVE title for this Young Reader's Corner, please, comment, comment away!
And of course, I'll be sure to mention the First Second Titles which belong here, such as SARDINE IN OUTER SPACE, available as of May 1st 2006 online or in your favorite bookstore, since we are wholeheartedly committed to helping raise the next generation of demanding Graphic Novel readers.
So we begin, with the most amazing THE ADVENTURES OF POLO by Regis Faller (from Roaring Brook Press, :01's parent company.)
It's exquisite, generous, surprising, thrilling, delightful storytelling, without any words -- and you can get a glimpse of Polo's world at the Polo website, although it's in French.
