Top Ten Picture Books/Comic Books/Graphic Novels that popped into my head when I saw this topic
Six books featured below:
and for the remaining four:
The whole series:
So here are the top ten that I thought of... A few quick comments on them:
- Song for Papa Crow - this is a much loved children's picture book at home for both it illustrations and the story.
- Oh! The Places You'll Go - there is no introduction needed for Dr.Seuss's classic book..:) One of my favorite items to gift in the past few years as well
- Manga Classics: Pride and Prejudice - not sure how I did not review this book when I read it but I loved this version as well (having completed reading the book itself very recently)
- Isabella: Girl on the Go (and other books in the series) - spunky Isabella endears!
- Water Can Be - this book is magical, with words and illustrations flowing together seamlessly to show the changing faces of water through the seasons of the year and more
- Cozy Classics - classics condensed into a board book with adorable felt characters
- Asterix - this Gaul along with his loyal friend Obelix were some of favorite comic book heroes! But my favorite character in these comics is Getafix, the druid! I love his sense of humor
- Calvin and Hobbes - this is a family favorite !
- Amar Chitra Katha - ‘Amar Chitra Katha’ (ACK) literally means ‘Immortal Picture Stories’ and these comic books let me (and so many other children around India) explore Indian mythology, history, and more
- Indrajal comics - as a child growing up in India, along with the staple diet of Amar Chitra Katha (mentioned above), my brother and I also read Indrajal comics, which included the world of Phantom (The Ghost who Walks), Mandrake the Magician, Flash Gordon and his space adventures, the heroic Bahadur and more.
