Persepolis

Hey guys, I just read a graphic novel called Persepolis. It is a great book and I encourage you to read it. Tell me what you think of graphic novels, or even the book Persepolis. There is also a sequel called Persepolis 2.
Thanks,
Luke Spartan

The name of the book is Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return. The protagonist goes back to Iran. I haven't gotten to read it yet but it sounds like the graphics are just as great and what happens to the main character is very moving. I would love to hear some titles of graphic novels students would like to read. Most of the 7the 7th graders at SJHS are reading Megaboy which is about a kid who shoots and kills a store owner and the reader tries to figure out why he did the crime. Sent those titles my way!!!

Have you guys ever seen the movie 'The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe' ??? Well I dislike that movie a whole lot now. It is from a series of 7 books called The Chronicles of Narnia. Well the ONLY book I have read so far was the first. This was a very interesting and intriguing book. I think it was a poor choice to make a movie of the second book when there was SO much information in the first. Anyways, I guess my point is that this book is a really great one.
