Graphic Novels to Give for the Holidays

It may surprise you, but I like giving graphic novels for the holidays.  Your child feels like they just got a comic book, but the quality of these offerings is so good, that you know it is much more than that.  Think Mikey and Life cereal, for those of you who grew up in the 70's!  It tastes great and it's good for you too.

Don't forget to like one great book on Facebook, or follow us on twitter for wonderful children's book recommendations throughout the year.

The Odyssey by Gareth Hinds is one that my son is getting for Christmas.  This is a wonderful retelling of Homer's epic poem of Odysseus's journey home after the Trojan War.  It makes this poem accessible to all and is even a fabulous companion piece to those already familiar with the tale.  To purchase this book from Amazon, click here: The Odyssey

Hades:Lord of the Dead by George O'Connor is the fourth installment in this graphic novel series about the Greek gods.  These books are full of adventure, and action packed.  O'Connor has managed to include a plethora of information in an engaging graphic novel.  These are great books to give kids who love the Percy Jackson series.  To purchase this book from Amazon, click here: Hades: Lord of the Dead (Olympians)

Legends of Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke is the second book in this highly recommended series.  In this sequel, Zita has become an intergalactic superstar, but she must still make her way home.  As she works her way across the galaxy, she continues to meet new characters including one who has taken her identity.  To purchase this book from Amazon, click here: Legends of Zita the Spacegirl

Mal & Chad: Belly Flop by Stephen McCranie is the third book in this fun series.  Mal is a genius who can build almost anything, but trouble is never far behind and thankfully his dog Chad is there to help him out!  To purchase this book from Amazon, click here: Belly Flop!: Book 3 (Mal and Chad)
