Living in a graphic novel world

Browsing through the Juvenile books section at the library today, I came across the J Graphic Novel section. I’m surprised to see so many of my favorite childhood classics transformed into newer, edgier versions. When I was little, there was only Garfield and Calvin and Hobbes. Now it seems like any book that was popular with kids is now a graphic novel.  Not that I’m complaining. I like comic books and graphic novels. Its just interesting how reading is evolving for kids. First there were no children’s books, then slowly children’s books began to evolve and develop. They were broken up into sections: picture books, easy readers, chapter books. And now they all seems to merge into comic book form.

The Baby-Sitters Club: Kristy's Great Idea The Demon of River Heights (Nancy Drew Graphic Novels: Girl Detective #1)

Mad House (Hardy Boys Graphic Novels: Undercover Brothers #3) (No. 3)

I feel special…
