The Girl and the Glim GN – IDW Publishing releases an original graphic novel about facing the unknown and doing what’s right. Bridgette had hoped that when she started at her new school, she would be able to find some friends. But between the bullies and her own nervousness, she is having a tough time making a good impression. Or any impression. That’s when strange things start to happen. Something dark and scary that only she can see, invisible monsters called the Glum. With the help of the shimmery, glimmery fluff ball called the Glim, she will have to stop worrying about what others think of her and find a way to save the town. This title explores themes such as the fact that accepting fear is okay and that letting other people see your vulnerabilities can be scary but can also lead to closer friendships, and it is a great addition to any graphic novel library.
Disney Manga Donald Duck Visits Japan GN – Tokyopop jets off for a crash course in Japanese culture. Donald and his employees Jose Carioca and Panchito Pistoles have been transferred to the Asian Culture and Distribution Department of the American furniture business Duck Furnishings. After two months of no word from anyone, they are suddenly sent to Japan. The three caballeros must learn all they can about Japanese customs, entertainment, food, culture, and clothing before returning to New York City! Assuming they don’t get into too much trouble first! Readers can learn about Japanese culture while following the antics of Donald and his friends.
