Our favourite graphic novels

Boy reading graphic novels


Graphic novels are a great way of getting emerging and reluctant readers of all ages reading by themselves. They are a feast for the eyes, packed full of images to help engage young readers, while at the same time offering the sort of complex plot lines and deeper characterisation that middle grade readers are ready for.

Here are a few of our favourite graphic novels and series:

  1. Asterix and Obelix
  2. Tintin
  3. Hilo
  4. Amulet
  5. Diary of a Wimpy Kid
  6. Captain Underpants
  7. Bone
  8. Nausicaa
  9. Sardine in Outer Space
  10. Treehouse series
  11. Roller Girl
