John Stanley Library Melvin Monster Volume 2 – This title is part of a revival of kids comics from the 60’s that were too good to be forgotten. Melvin Monster is one of those titles. Created by John Stanley who also created Nancy and Little Lulu, this title is about Melvin, a monster who just wants to be good, go to school and do as he’s told. With lots of humor and monsters galore kids will love the stories, and adults will love the nostalgia of reading books from the childhood.
Stone Rabbit Book 4 Superhero Stampede – Superheroes are all the rage, so it’s no surprise that Stone Rabbit reads comics about them too. But when he’s hit with a homemade reality transmutation device, he is sent into the pages of his favorite comic, with superpowers, a costume and a band of egotistical evildoers to defeat. A great series for elementary and middle school, Stone Rabbit has all the action and humor that kids love and will keep them reading.
