Graphic Novels In Your Media Center: A Definitive Guide
by Allyson A. W. Lyga

Aimed specifically at school media specialists, the scope, style, and tone of this book make it appropriate for any educator, or for anyone wishing to understand the educator's perspective on comics. The author, a Fulbright Memorial Scholar and award-winning schoolteacher, provides an authoritative take on comics from the educational perspective, citing academic studies that argue for the use of comics in the classroom, defining terms for newcomers, and presenting reviews of 25 titles appropriate for various age levels. The book also includes more than a dozen lesson plans for comic books and an extensive unit plan. School Library Journal called the book an "excellent resource guide," "unique," and "indispensable."
