A staple of my childhood that has only grown in value through my adulthood. The world of Bone is rich and atmospheric, brimming with fantastic creatures, charming characters, and plenty of laughs. It is impossible not to fall in love with Fone Bone, Phoney Bone, Smiley Bone, and the curious denizens they encounter over the mountains. ~ Reviewed by Digby Baker-Porazinski

Tara Smith has lived her whole life not fitting in with her classmates, books are her friends, she has a strict schedule she sticks to and knows she is bound for bigger things. During a fluke accident the bracelet that she wears is damaged and that’s when things start to get exciting. After all, not every day you see a classmate spontaneously combust. Waking up in an underground school for aliens (which she learns, she is one) Tara finally thinks school will be easy. After all she will finally fit in. Right? Not so much. The hilarity ensues with best friend and roommate misunderstandings, a Russian-sounding-cat who loves teen dramas and teachers that still assign tons of homework. You will find humor, adventure, mystery, relatable characters and themes of coming-of-age while learning to accept who you are. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Lucy Knisley has already established herself as one of the premier graphic novelists of this generation with her many graphic memoirs. Stepping Stones is her first in a series of mid-child fiction, but is still deeply rooted in Knisley's real life experiences. Illustrations are clear and colorful, and each character is well rounded. A quick read, but one that will be enjoyed by a large age group, including her many adult fans. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

Probert puts fantasy staples throughout, with modern themes, hints of classic tales and wraps it up all in a sparsely texted story that is beautifully illustrated. This charming graphic novel is a fast-paced story that is great for the 10 to 14-year-old reader (of course, adults must read, too). Friendship has never been so sweet or funny. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
