"When Andrew's lunch goes missing in The Lost Lunch , he can’t think where he might have left it. With the help of his friend Dylan, he looks on the playground and in the classroom, until he finally thinks to look in the lost and found. Kids like this early mystery, as Dylan searches all the places in his school where he thinks his lunch might be. It's successful because kids can relate to the very same thing happening to them.
This series provides fun, appealing early readers for children who enjoy comics and graphic novels. The bright illustrations, short sentences with controlled vocabulary, and text that is supported by closely matching art helps early readers enjoy these independently. Look at this example from Google Books to get a sense of how bright their illustrations are, and how they use simple sentences and vocabulary.
Do you have a favorite graphic novel for your new reader? We also enjoy the Toon Books, like Benny and Penny . I'm curious about the Balloon Toon books, like Rick and Rack and the Great Outdoors . If you've read this, let us know what you think of it!
