Three for Thursday

Leave a comment

 

It’s late on Thursday, but technically still September 16, so it’s not too late to look at three books on one theme – hence the title of this weekly post.  Today I met with a group of 4th, 5th and 6th grade students and, among other components of their library orientation, showed them lots of new books. Admittedly, the students were most excited to hear that the library was going to have a few iPads, but all of the graphic novels definitely captured their interest.  These three were checked out right way, and I even started a “wait list.” 

Rapunzel’s Revenge by Shannon and Dean Hale (A retelling of the classic fairy tale with a Wild West setting. This book is two-years-old, but it was in the display and captured the attention of a few kid’s right away.)

The Unsinkable Walker Bean by Aaron Renier (As unlikely as this sounds, the story is about a boy who has to return a skull to the ocean floor. Witches, pirates, cannons, villains – adventure on every page!)

Treasure Island by Roy Thomas (a six-volume set of books by the folks at Marvel Comics.  I wish the books used Stevenson’s words, but if this action-packed version leads them to the original novel, it’s a fine introduction.)
