Picks:

Elsewhere Chronicles Vol 1 – France has become quite the goldmine in terms of comics for kids.  Cinebook has quite a few titles in their library, and now Lerner Publishing has picked up this one.  Winner of the Best Comic Book for Young Readers at the Lyon Comics Festival in 2008, Elsewhere Chronicles follows the adventures of Max, Rebecca, Noah and Theo as they are pulled through the Shadow Door into the land of Shadows, and must fight the Shadow Master to get home.  Lerner is release all three volumes at one, so there’s not waiting to find out how it ends.

Big Adventures of Majoko vol 1 – One of Udon Entertainment’s debut titles, this one is full of fun and adventure, but is definitely for the girls.  Nana befriends a young witch, and together they go on many adventures in the land of magic, from finding a necklace in a cave, to passing several tests to get their fortune told.  This title is a must for elementary school libraries.  Younger readers will love the stories and easy to read text, but Middle School libraries may want to think twice.  While the book is fun, it’s simplistic plots may be a turn off to older tween-teens.
