Grade 4-8–Many books describe the writing and drawing process for graphic novels, but this one sets itself apart by explaining how to create a three-panel comic strip from start to finish. The author includes advice on getting story ideas, sketching jokes, layout and design, adding color, and getting feedback. The bright, dynamic layout includes full-color illustrations. The writing is clear and concise so that after completing the book, readers will feel confident to branch out on their own. Roche is mindful of his young audience as he directs them to the Internet, warning them to ask a parent before going online. An excellent addition.–Esther Keller, I.S. 278, Marine Park, NY
