    This is an excellent book for anyone interested in incorporating graphic novels into their curriculum or anyone wanting to learn about how they can be utilized. I wrote several papers similar to the ones in this book for various graduate level classes so this book really rang true for me. It's a bit dated, I will grant it that, but it is still relevant.

    Was a text book for a class I took this summer. I found it interesting. I feel that Carter spends too much time trying show us that we need to replace novels with Graphic Novels. There are some interesting Graphic Novels out there but I think for now until they are more main stream they are excellent companions to the novels or topics you are already teaching. Does have some great lesson plans within the text.

    This is a book that I put on my list for the RI Educational Media conference presentation I made on Monday, April 28. It went really well and I always enjoy talking to and with the school librarians in my state. My friend Ed did a morning presentation on manga which was great and we got to hear the writer Richard Peck speak at lunch which was a great treat!

    Although I like the ideas here, I would feel nervous teaching some of the graphic novels proposed in even a progressive public high school...
