Middle Grades

For middle grade readers I’m going to cite examples of some good graphic novels, but with a little exploration, you’ll be able to find more good work.

In this world famous series from a Belgian cartoonist, the intrepid boy reporter Tintin and his little white dog Snowy travel to the far corners of the world on all sorts of exciting quests.
