Snow White

Snow White a Graphic Novel is the classic Snow White story set after World War I. During the war while many men were serving in the military, many women did things they had not done before, like working outside the home in factories and businesses. During this time more women went to college and they won the right to vote. It is a really interesting time to set a story like Snow White, a story about a girl who seems to rely entirely on other people to rescue her or take care of her.

In this telling, Snow is strong and resilient and brave. She relies on her friends. Seven friends. I bet if you try to guess who they are, you’ll be wrong! This time around, Snow is rescued, but she does her own rescuing too! A great ending to a book that changes up the Snow White story to highlight how you get by with a little help from your friends!

Read Right Now! Big Nate

Big Nate Goes Bananas

Big Nate Goes Bananas continues the adventures of sixth-grader Nate Wright, the all-time record-holder for detentions who is usually in trouble up to his eyeballs! Nate is not exactly honor roll material! He’s too busy trying to impress Jenny to concentrate on his school work. He also likes complaining and pranks and asking a lot of questions to keep the teacher off topic. If you think about it you’ve probably got someone in your class like Nate already…or maybe that someone is YOU!

This time Nate’s genius gets him into all kinds of trouble, as usual! While he prepares for summer, has a problem with an over-ripe banana and faces social studies being taught by Coach John, can Nate once again save himself…from himself?

I knew that Big Nate actually started as a comic strip but I had never read it. Listed below is Nate’s comic strip archive. You could read a Big Nate comic strip, right now!

If you like Greg Heffley from Diary of a Wimpy Kid, I think you’ll like Nate too, he’s funny, but what he isn’t, is wimpy! Nate is loud and confident and ready to bend the world HIS way.
