"Bambino was the first graphic novel I read this week. It is a short biography from the Capstone Graphic Library collection. I was impressed with this biography of Babe Ruth for many reasons. First of all, it is a thin book-pretty accessible for lots of kids. Secondly, the book only focuses on the one season in Babe Ruth's career when he beat his own home-run record. I like the focus on the one season, rather than a book about his whole life. The book packs a lot of information and I find myself more interested in Babe Ruth than I had been. I am going to look into more of the books in this series. http://readingyear.blogspot.com/2011/06/graphic-novel-reading-thanks-to-book.html" - A Year of Reading blog
