Happy Sunday Bibliofriends,
We are continuing our Celebration of Children’s Books this November with a post today all about children’s books that would make brilliant graphic novels! Being totally honest, I don’t really read Graphic novels – they aren’t ever a genre that’s really been on my radar until recently so I must apologise to any authors/fans in advance if any of the following are already graphic novels!
For those who don’t already know, Six for Sunday is weekly meme hosted by Steph over at A Little But A Lot.
Books That Would Make Brilliant Graphic Novels
Cogheart by Peter Bunzl
I read this with my Year 6 Class as part of our steampunk topic and we absolutely loved it. Bunzl’s writing gave me such vivid images in my head of the world of Cogheart that I think it would be perfect for a graphic novel.
The Girl of Ink and Stars by Karen Millwood Hargrave
The setting and world-building in this book were so inventive that I’d love to see it in the imagery of a graphic novel.
Spies by Michael Frayn
I remember studying this in High School and I became so engrossed in the whole plot and the storyline. It would be nice to have this as a graphic novel so that I could dip back into it whenever I have time without reading the whole book all over again.
The Whizz Pop Chocolate Shop by Kate Saunders
I cam across the Whizz Pop Chocolate Shop by pure coincidence but it’s another one where the world is so fun-filled and fabulous that I’d love to see someone draw it out in graphic novel form – just to see those decorative chocolate moulds!
Eragon by Christopher Paolini
I think I read Eragon on holiday and became so entranced with the whole idea of dragons hatching from eggs – it really reignited my love for fantasy fiction. The trouble I have is that I haven’t read the rest of the series yet and I can;t quite remember all of the crucial details from the story – having it in graphic novel form would give me the perfect recap so I can finish the Cycle!
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
This is one of those books where I have seen the film but haven’t
yet read the book. The whole idea of being able to read a story into existence is so magical and I thoroughly enjoyed the film so much that I’d love to read a graphic novel version of it!
