I'm not sure my ranking is totally fair. It's based on the fact that the book really was not what I expected it to be. I had hoped for suggestions on using comics and graphic novels in the classroom. It was really more of how-to build and promote a graphic novel collection for librarians.

Having said that, there is one cool activity about creating a superhero that I do plan to put in my files.

This is a good, basic title with some good material for pull quotes making the connection between graphic novels and literacy. There are also compilations and suggestions of titles for collection development.

A wonderful resource for not only YA librarians but also teachers who want to use graphic novels in the classroom. The author presents several excellent arguments for using graphic novels to promote literacy and gives the reader tips on how to handle resistance to this idea.

Easy to understand and energizing for anyone wanting to teach on the subject of graphic novels. Very useful for collection development in a library.
