"Appropriately, this primer on how to read and teach graphic texts in today's classroom relies on text and illustrations to make its points. By first detailing the evolution of the author, Katie, as she sampled graphic texts, and then following her emerging ideas as they play out in the classroom, the book engages readers and provides support for teachers as they integrate multi-modal texts in their own classrooms. Divided into two parts and six chapters focusing on the importance of graphic texts in literacy as well as providing specific lesson for how to teach them, the book is filled with excellent information about the different features of these texts such as thought balloons and gutters as well as humor. Readers will enjoy the section devoted to the meeting of the League of Extraordinary Graphic Novel Gurus featuring Dr. James Bucky Carter, Jeff Smith, Scott McCloud, Will Eisner, Art Spiegelman, Marjane Satrapi, and Harvey Pekar, all influential experts in this area and either creators or researchers of graphic novels. Most appealing of all, though, may be the author's own admonition of her initial disdain for this type of reading, the interaction between the author and the illustrator, and the sections inviting readers to record their own thoughts on what they have read. Mind-expanding and edgy, this is a terrific book to generate possible curricular and methodological changes. - Reading Today Online http://www.reading.org/general/Publications/blog/BlogSinglePost/reading-today-online/2013/06/12/reviews-of-new-graphic-novels" - Reading Today Online
