This book combines the bold and energetic lines of graffiti art with the bright colors of cel-shaded video games and an obvious Japanese manga influence. Many aspects of it are different from other how-to-draw books. The teaching itself is unique and totally accessible: the drawing instructions are narrated by two brothers, with the younger learning techniques from his older sibling in a way that anticipates the relationship between readers and the book's creators. There is no other book of this kind on the market, making it a necessary and relevant purchase for older readers.

This guide by librarians at Toronto Public Library, provides students with a humorous look at how to research using the library and cyberspace, as well as learning to think critically about information one reads. Though not fully a graphic novel, about half of the book is illustrated in cartoons. Written in a conversational tone, the book is one of the more readable 'how to' books about information literacy.

Rollins, a professional comic-book artist who has "worked on virtually every character in the DC Universe," is an earnest, easy-to-understand adviser who's generous with his insights about craft and techniques. What makes this such a useful guide is that it's also a flip book: read one side, and you get a clear account of how Rollins puts together his graphic novel; turn the book over, and you can read the work he's created, a science fiction story set in a future where people no longer sleep.

This retelling of the classic novel, Oliver Twist, as a graphic novel makes the story accessible to younger readers, but it is also suitable for some older readers. Additional pages at the end of the books provide details of Charles Dickens's life and the time period he was writing in, as well as a history of the novel itself. Other books in this series include Treasure Island, Moby Dick, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Kidnapped and Journey to the Center of the Earth.

Step back into the Middle Ages for a boisterous, bawdy storytelling session led by the one and only Chaucer. Marcia Williams uses her signature comic-strip format to animate nine Canterbury classics, including "The Clerk's Tale," "The Miller's Tale," and "The Wife of Bath's Tale." Interspersed with her lively narrative and running side-commentary are bits of dialogue from the original Medieval English text, bringing the essence of Chaucer's colorful humor to modern readers in an engaging way.
