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.
A New York Times bestseller! Winner of the 2019 Kirkus Prize for Young Readers’ Literature!
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.
