I just had to share this graphic novel series I found a few weeks ago. Kazu Kibuishi's AMULET series is gorgeous, and if you need something for a reluctant reader, these graphic readers might be what you're looking for.
In THE STONEKEEPER, Emily and Navin discover an alternate reality when a creature abducts their mother. To save her, Emily becomes a Stonekeeper.
In THE STONEKEEPER'S CURSE, the Elf King sends two of his own Stonekeepers to kill Emily and Navin, but there are others willing to help and protect children who might end the tyrant's oppression.
THE CLOUD SEARCHERS adds what I thought the most sinister villain yet to the cast of characters. Emily and Navin join forces with former enemies turned fugitives to search for a city that might not exist. They'll need the Stonekeepers of Cielis.
This adventure series has elements of fantasy, manga, and steampunk. If you like BONE, by Jeff Smith or RAPUNZEL'S REVENGE, by Shannon Hale, I think you'll like AMULET. And the fourth book comes out next month. :o)
