The Arrival by Shaun Tan

The world's most beautiful graphic novel about the world's most relatable need: belonging. Shaun Tan's classic work follows an immigrant in a new country, unlike any the reader will ever have seen before, as he learns its inscrutable language and confusing rules in order to navigate the workforce and feed his family back home. My go-to for a feel good, gorgeously illustrated, and deeply human book where any reader can find their home. -Yves

Frizzy Written by Claribel A. Ortega

Frizzy is a beautifully illustrated graphic novel for anyone who has ever had to justify their own appearance. I instantly connected with Marlene’s challenge in trying to be herself amidst a whirlwind of adults, peers, and family members pressuring her to conform. I reveled in all of her successes as she learned to stand up for herself, and I couldn’t put the book down until I knew she’d be okay.

Crabgrass: Comic Adventures by Tauhid Bondia

Tauhid Bondia’s Kevin and Miles spring to life with hijinks that are sometimes a four-panel joke, sometimes famed exploits. The adventures of these two kids involve school and family, imagined and real-life (mild) danger, and the bonds of friendship, which are tested but never broken. Bondia draws and writes in the tradition of Foxtrot and Calvin and Hobbes, building stories you can read for just a minute or for hours. Great for any kid looking for something fast, fun, and real.

Calling all nerds and storytellers! This fun new graphic novel series follows a party of teen D&D players through tabletop and real-life adventures. Xanthe Bouma’s vivid, awesome art propels you through Molly Knox Ostertag’s all-too-relatable story exploring friendship, fear, and why it can be so hard to be your authentic self in real life. I dare you to not love these characters, flaws and all. I know I am already (im)patiently waiting for the next book!

Bunnicula: The Graphic Novel Written by James Howe & Andrew Donkin

Parents rejoice! Our beloved cat and dog detective duo are back, this time fully illustrated. Bunnicula was one of my favorites as a child, a little spooky but mostly silly. Donkin and Gilpin do a great job adapting this 1979 classic and breathing new life into a series that stands the test of time. Amazing for any child who loves to live on the creepy side of life, even those with a low scare tolerance! —MJ
