By popular demand TOON Books is expanding its catalog for older readers ages 8 and up. TOON Graphics are comics and visual narratives that bring the text to life in a way that captures young readers’ imaginations and makes them want to read on—and read more. Children also develop their aesthetic sense when they experience the relationship of text to picture in all its communicative power. Vetted by our team of educational experts, TOON Graphics introduce great storytelling traditions from around the world.
From best-selling author Neil Gaiman and internationally acclaimed artist Lorenzo Mattotti comes Hansel & Gretel, a retelling of the Grimm tale unlike any you’ve ever experienced. For lovers of mythology comes Theseus and the Minotaur, a lush rendition of the classic hero’s showdown with the monstrous Minotaur. And from France comes the first of a beloved series, Philemon, with Cast Away on the Letter A, a fantastical journey to a place that doesn’t exist.
We are proud to introduce these new books that promote both verbal and visual literacy while also providing children a fun and illuminating experience.
