Upcoming Kids' Graphic Novels (AKA Your Holiday Shopping List)


“When does the next book in [insert children’s graphic novel series here] come out?"

We’re disappointed. We understand. Waiting is hard. But guess what? It’s FALL which is basically NEW BOOK SEASON A-GO-GO!!!! The books are on the way!!!!

Here’s a comprehensive list of release dates—parents pay attention!

 

OUT NOW! SURFSIDE GIRLS: MYSTERY AT THE OLD RANCHO by Kim Dwinell

Sam and Jade are back at Danger Point—but so are the ghosts. A 200 year old mystery "takes the girls all over their town and beyond, all while Surfside's Annual Surf Competition is going on. Add to the mix a cute surfer boy, a mysterious mustached man with a guitar, and a very jealous Sam—can the surfing sleuths save the day again?"

 

OUT NOW! BEST FRIENDS BY SHANNON HALE & LEUYEN PHAM

The follow-up to Hale’s memoir Real Friends. Most of Shannon’s friends were pretty mean to her in elementary school in the last book, so I’m really hoping things go better in junior high (not sure how likely that is).
