How Many Graphic Novels Have YOU Read in the Last Year?

Do you see that band wagon fixin' to leave the station? It's the Children's Graphic Novel Express! Run aboard! Jump in! Smile to the press for the maiden voyage photo! We're making history!!

But, WAIT! Hold it! Right there!

Your ticket -- do you have your ticket?!

"Ticket?!" you ask.

"Well, yeah! Just how many graphic novels have you read in the last 12 months?"

Blank stares...

"How 'bout thirty?... Twenty?... Ten?!?!... Not EVEN ten!!! Waitaminute! Children's graphic novels are serious business! Do some readin' and then hop right in! It's gonna be a fun ride!!!"

Sara, if I wanted to come any close to your ability to write poetry, I'd have to read a lot more of it! And that's the spirit I'm encouraging regarding graphic novels. Also, your librarian friend and I agree: First Second rocks! Anna, all the exclamation points: PURE ENERGY!!!! ;-D
