Chapter & Verse Book Club: New Kid and The Cardboard Kingdom
August has been graphic novel-reading month since we began Chapter & Verse in 2008. This month we're reading New Kid by Jerry Craft and The Cardboard Kingdom by ten authors and illustrator Chad Sell.
Perfect for fans of Raina Telgemeier and Gene Luen Yang, New Kid is a timely, honest graphic novel about starting over at a new school where diversity is low and the struggle to fit in is real, from award-winning author-illustrator Jerry Craft.
Perfect for fans of Raina Telgemeier, Awkward, and All's Faire in Middle School, this graphic novel follows a neighborhood of kids who transform ordinary cardboard into fantastical homemade costumes as they explore conflicts with friends, family, and their own identity.
