Bone by Jeff Smith
Reviewed by Sammie, grade 6

This is a graphic novel about a bone who finds a baby monster and names him Bartleby.  Bone's brother doesn't like Bartleby and wants him to leave.  Bartleby eventually goes on his own to live with his own kind.

Foiled by Jane Yolen
Reviewed by Firestarness, grade 7

This is an awesome short graphic novel.  It's about a girl named Aleira who likes fencing.  She has a fencing rod that has a jewel at the end.  She soon finds out about its magical powers.

Mouse Guard Fall 1152 by David Petersen
Reviewed by Nobody, grade 7

This is a graphic novel about the lives of mice.  They have formed a mouse guard to protect them from the dangers outside.  The story is about a plot to overthrow the guard.  I thought that this book was not very original.  It followed the common story plot just with mice.  It was mostly predictable but the story was good.

Page by Paige by Laura Lee Gulledge
Reviewed by The Who, grade 7

This book is a graphic novel about a girl who moves to New York City with her family, and the new friends she makes.  The book has really good pictures and a good story line.

Smile by Raina Telgemeier
Reviewed by WellReader, grade 8

This book is a graphic novel about a young teenage girl who has teeth problems.  She knocks out a few of her grown-up teeth and has to deal with painful consequences for years afterward.  she has other problems too, like growing up, friends, boys, and entering high school.  This is a funny read.
