When I was a kid...


A lot of my exposure to Great Writings came from Classics Illustrated comic books. Now the library carries the next best thing for young readers: Graphic Novels.

These books are nowhere near 'accurate' in regards to retelling the plays, but they are a lot of fun to read. I like Lendler's witty writing and Giallongo's playful illustrations... well, I call them playful-


Classic comedy

We get a lot of other children's graphic novels in various styles and formats. I lean toward the furry ones ;o)

Well, except this one-

Check out your local Library for these and other fun, similar books!
