Post for February 27th
What I wanted to post for this blog yesterday is pictured above. I am a couple of days behind in my posting on this blog! I just never had the time to get on the computer to post.
Yesterday I visited Barnes & Noble in the graphic novel section (by suggestion of a fellow blogger) and had the best time. I never knew there was such a genre in literature. I am told it is fairly new. I only had a few minutes to look around and the salesman took me back to the children's literature which is how I ended up with this cute little book.
The reason I was so interested in this is because of the illustrations in these books. They are wonderful, although I will say that from the short period of time I had to look, the adult books looked mostly violent to me which does NOT appeal to me. There were John Patterson and Dean Koontz books, for example, in this section which just blew me away. I had no idea and I go to bookstores all the time. Guess I need to be more observant!
The Manga section was very interesting and the illustrations were wonderful. The faces are more angular, almost triangular-shaped, for instance. Also you read the Manga books from back to front which is very interesting. I may go back and choose a Manga book to have but for right now, I will enjoy this little 3rd grade-level book. It's very cute. I will enjoy it and so will my granddaughter.
I have no photo to post for today because what I wanted to post could not be photographed in the dark! ha! This was a very busy day, too. I just need to catch up!
