Graphic Novels for Kids

Comic books and graphic novels for kids are all-time favorites. Like Dog Man. He’s a policeman, he’s a crimefighter, he’s a dog! He’s the best of both, a canine and a crimefighter doing his best to outsmart his archnemesis, an evil cat, who does TERRIBLE things like plotting to destroy all books to make the world “supa dumb”! Read the whole series or have fun with these Dog Man Activity Sheets. These stories definitely aren’t just about superheroes anymore! In this list you will find a diverse cast of characters whose stories are set in different and interesting places. Also try Read Right Now: Superheroes.
