I confess to not remembering where I heard about the Graphic Library series, but it is definitely a worthwhile series for engaging a young independent reader. Who doesn’t love great disasters in history, especially written as a graphic novel?!
In anticipation of our Chicago trip, we read the story of the Great Chicago Fire. The kids really enjoyed the story. Though they are currently reading un-illustrated novels, each of them liked the graphics, too.
I found this on Amazon, used, for a very reasonable price. It is a welcome addition to our library.
