Raina Telgemeier's Favorite Graphic Novels

Ghosts200Raina Telgemeier has made a huge impact on bringing graphic novels to a wider young readership, especially for girls.  Smile and Sisters have been wildly popular, and her latest book, Ghosts, quickly became a bestseller and a must-read for young fans.  Telgemeier's books are a special blend of fun, engaging art, paired with a story that reaches deeper into situations that kids will relate to and appreciate. My own daughter recently discovered Ghosts through friends at school and came home excited for the first time about reading a graphic novel, so I'm looking forward to showing her the list below of some of Telgemeier's personal favorites:
