Hey guys, so I want to start doing something called graphic novel Sunday, where I review graphic novels every Sunday. Because who doesn’t love a good graphic novel? I will try to post them in groups of two or more books of a similar topic, but sometimes they will just be random. Here we go. First one:
“Muddle School by Dave Whamond is a fun and funny graphic novel that is sure to resonate with its target audience as well as anyone who has survived the middle school years. Whamond’s personal experiences had me laughing out loud in places, and his illustrations did a great job of enhancing the story.” This book is about a boy in middle school who is really shy and gets bullied. Eventually he becomes friends with a boy from his science class and they build a time machine! Does it work? Find out as you read about him learning to make new friends and going to his first school dance. I really liked this book, it made me laugh and it was relatable in some places. I would say 11 and up and I’m giving it 4/5😄.
“Seventh grader Jordan Banks loves nothing more than drawing cartoons about his life. But instead of sending him to the art school of his dreams, his parents enroll him in a prestigious private school, known for its academics, where Jordan turns out to be one of the few kids of color.” When Jordan switches to his new private school he is not excited. When he finds out that he is one of the few kids of color in his whole school, he feels like he doesn’t belong there. His guide, the person who shows him around the school, is really nice and his other friend Drew is as well. He is afraid they won’t get along, but a meeting with his grandpa convinces him to try, and he finds out that they all get along fine. This book is really good. I would say 11 and up and I’m giving it 4/5😄.
Have a great day and happy reading!
