Arcade World Chapterbook Volume 1 Dino Trouble GN – Little Simon releases a new graphic novel series for young readers. Life in the town of Normal used to be just that; normal. Kids went to school, did their homework and chores after school and then met at the local arcade, called Arcade World. And no one held more high scores than Travis Better and Journey West. But one day, the video games in Arcade World came alive. Now, Travis and Journey race dinosaurs to school, avoid bottomless pit falls, and battle aliens. The two best friends must level up to solve mysteries such as what’s going on, who really owns Arcade World, and whether this video game takeover is a glitch or part of a larger, evil plan. Filled with action, adventure, and humor, this graphic novel will appeal to emerging readers.
Geraldine Pu And Her Cat Hat Too GN – Simon Spotlight releases the second book in their Ready-To-Read Graphics series. Geraldine Pu is spunky, funny and friendly. She loves her cat hat Mao Maotzuh, but not her own hair. So what’s she to do when she learns picture day is coming up at school, and there is a strict no hat policy. Geraldine must learn to love her hair and her own unique style. This series is a good introduction to graphic novels with sequential storytelling, easy-to-follow panels and speech bubbles. It’s the perfect series for beginning readers. [Check out our review!—Ed.]
