Kazu Kibuishi is turning into the Lee Bennett Hopkins of the graphic novel world with his Flight series of graphic novel anthologies for older readers/adults, and now the second anthology for younger readers (following Flight: Explorer).

I am going to need to reread this -- I blasted through it before realizing that the subtitle (The Mystery Boxes) is the unifying theme for all of the stories. That's kind of a big "DUH" to keep in mind -- the title AND the subtitle can give the reader some hints that will help the story(ies) make more sense. Sounds like a minilesson to me!

And I'd love to know if Kibuishi gave these GN artists the prompt "Mystery Boxes" and this volume is the result of that writing prompt...idea for writing workshop? (I'm thinking of starting the year with a GN study -- this would be a perfect way to integrate writing workshop...)
