Adventures in Cartooning by James Sturm is an exciting and hilarious adventure story that is told with cartoons in a “graphic novel” form. It is about a missing princess and a brave knight who is determined to slay the deadly dragon that must have stolen her (you won’t believe where the princess turns up in the end). The eager knight’s quest is joined by a magic elf—the only problem is that the magic elf is more interested in teaching the knight (and you) all about comics than in helping defeat the dragon! While you’re enjoying the adventure, you get to learn all about how comics work—and how you can make your own! This book is great for long-time graphic novel fans who are ready to create their own epic adventures, but it’s also great for kids who have never even read a graphic novel before and who are just looking for a fun summer read!
