Fun Graphic Novel for the Younger Set

Now that a graphic novel has won a Newbery honor, I hope that parents and librarians take this genre seriously.  Well not always too seriously as the graphic novel I am profiling today is full of giggles and guffaws!

Don't forget to Follow One Great Book on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or by email to never miss the laugh inducing books that keep your kids reading.  Books are a wonderful thing!

Title:Bird & Squirrel On Ice

Author: James Burks

Target:Grade 2-5

Series: Yes

What this book is about: 
Bird and Squirrel are on their second adventure and find themselves at the South Pole.  As they run into a spear wielding penguin, she sees Bird can fly and declares that he is the chosen one who will save the village from the whale.  Bird loves the attention and is happy to take on the task, but Squirrel soon discovers that the penguins intend to feed Bird to the whale.  They now have to get out of their predicament … oh and save the village.

Why I love this book: 
These books never fail to incite laughter from my kids.  Bird is just funny and oblivious enough to keep the laughs coming.  Squirrel is always the voice of reason making these two friends the perfect odd couple.  

I also love that the panels are full color and large enough to see everything.  Half the fun of the book are the expressions on the animals’ faces as they get themselves in and out of trouble.

Who this book is for: 
Great book for kids starting graphic novels.  This series is funny, well drawn and the story arc is well developed.

Final thoughts: 
Can’t wait for more adventures with these two!  Keep ‘em coming!
