Scholastic sent out their Summer 2019 catalog this week, and as they are the #1 graphic novel publisher in the US, I thought you might like to see their lead offerings – with a few bonus preview pages even. Leading the way, Raina Telgemeier and Jeff Smith, but also…Bruce Lee.  And Scott Morse, whom I haven’t seen a book from in a while.


  • Calling all fans of Raina Telgemeier! Get ready to create comics and tell your own story in Share Your Smile: Raina’s Guide to Telling Your Own StoryWith guidance from Raina herself, brainstorm ideas, make lists, paste in personal photos, and use your imagination like never before to create your own stories.



  • From comics rising star Sarah Graley, comes Glitch—a fresh and funny middle-grade graphic novel featuring a girl who must save a virtual world… and her own!





  • In Dugout: The Zombie Steals Home by Scott Morse, twins Stacy and Gina Cavallaro are on rival little league teams, and when Gina accidentally unleashes a curse that wakes the dead, Stacy’s misfit team gets coached by a baseball-playing zombie!
Not final cover
  • As the world knows, Bruce Lee found his salvation and calling through kung fu—first as a student, then as a teacher, and finally as a global star. In The Boy Who Became a DragonJim Di Bartolo tells his story in brilliant comic form.


·        From Jeff Smith, the creator of the internationally bestselling and award-winning BONE series, comes Finders Keepers!, the second charming and funny picture book to feature the Bone cousins! Finding a coin leads to unexpected adventure—and lots of delighted giggles for young readers.




BONUS: For all you She-Ra fans two illustrated prose novels are coming. No previews alas!
