Classic Bible Stories
By Frank Hampson, Marcus Morris, Chad Varah, Giorgio Bellavitas
Reader Appeal: Young children, and Adults
Genre: Graphic novels / Bible Stories
Lush, richly retold illustrated versions of the story of Jesus and his later disciple, Mark. Created years ago as comic strips (in the tradition of Prince Valiant), this new collection is breathtaking in both style and scope, and features artwork from some of Britains finest comics artists of all time. The old-fashioned style may be too rich for elementary children, but preschoolers--and their parents--should be pleased.
Great for bedtime stories and read-aloud moments during the day.
