ALSC - Graphic Novels for Children

In 2011, the board of directors of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), directed the Quicklists Consulting Committee to create a list of core titles than can be used when starting or maintaining a children’s graphic novel collection. These are recommended for elementary school-age children (Grade K-2, Grade 3-5, and Grade 6-8). The committee defined graphic novel as a full-length story told in paneled, sequential, graphic format. They included classics as well as new titles that have been widely recommended and well-reviewed, and books that have popular appeal as well as critical acclaim.

This particular collection only includes some of the notable graphic novels of ALSC's Graphic Novels for Children list. (All rights reserved.)

Adventures in Cartooning: How to Turn Your Doodles into Comics (2009)

Written by James Sturm, Andrew Arnold and Alexis Frederick-Frost

In this action-packed cartooning adventure, kids will have as much fun making comics as reading them!

Once upon a time . . . a princess tried to make a comic. And with the help of a magical cartooning elf, she learned how—well enough to draw her way out of an encounter with a dangerous dragon, near-death by drowning, and into her very own adventure! Like the princess, young readers will discover that they already have the drawing and writing skills it takes to make a comic—they just need a little know-how. And Adventures in Cartooning supplies just that. This graphic novel is recommended for children ages 6 and up. (Copyright © First Second/Macmillan. All rights reserved.)
