Sprinkles and Swirls | Preview
Today we have a preview of a new early-reader graphic novel from Simon Spotlight, starring two cupcakes who are also best friends. Their first adventure is Sprinkles and Swirls: A Fun Day at Fun Park, which will be available on December 14.
Simon Spotlight launched the Ready-to-Read line of graphic novels earlier this year; like their non-comics counterparts, they are designed for emerging readers, and with comics, that means a limited number of panels per page, easy-to-follow action, and simple vocabulary. This title is designed for readers ages 4 to 6. Check out the preview below (which is arranged as two-page spreads) and check out the other Sprinkles and Swirls books, because these two cute cupcakes have a lot going on!
