Booklist recently announced their Top 10 Graphic Novel picks (from March 2015 – February 2016) and three books from Macmillan made the list!
DEMOCRACY by Alecos Papadatos and Abraham Kawa
Papadatos and Kawa’s tale follows Leander, an early follower of Cleisthenes, often called the father of democracy, in what is not only a compelling story but an expertly realized piece of historical fiction.
ROSALIE LIGHTNING by Tom Hart
With stunning, evocative artwork, Hart tells the heartbreaking tale of his daughter’s death mere weeks before her second birthday and the grief he and his wife faced in the aftermath. Extraordinarily moving and beautifully executed.
SYLLABUS: Notes From an Accidental Professor by Lynda Barry
Barry offers a glimpse into her creativity and teaching process in this enlightening and absorbing collection, which encourages cultivating creativity through experimentation, memory, and mindfulness. Terrifically illuminating.
Plus, SUPERMUTANT MAGIC ACADEMY by Jillian Tamaki is a Top 10 Graphic Novels for Youth pick!
With expert, deceptively simple artwork, Tamaki creates a heartbreaking and hilarious collection of wry vignettes, exploring the thrills and banalities of superhuman teens at boarding school.
