Genre- Graphic Novels

Title: Comic Adventures of Bootsboots

Author: Satoshi Kitamura

Publisher: Farrar Straus Giroux

Date: 2002

Age Level: Elementary(3-4)

Summary: This book is about Boots the cat. It has short stories that tell the adventures of boots in comic strip format.

Strengths: I enjoyed reading about Boots. I thought that if kids were struggling to read this might be a great book to introduce to them because it is easy and fun to read. If a teacher was doing a unit on graphic novels this might be a great book to show them to start off with.

Concerns: This book really has no point. It might be too much for some students, there is a lot going on and it might be hard for some to keep up.

Classroom Use: I would recommend having this book in the classroom for students to read during free time. It is a good book to get students interested in graphic novels.
