Graphic Novels are so popular (finally), maybe your child (or even you!) might want to create one.
If you are a "beginner" aspiring graphic novelist, You Can Do a Graphic Novel by graphic novelist and graphic novel instructor Barbara Slate is a good place to start.
You Can Do a Graphic Novel starts with the basics: the components of a good graphic novel, and covers all aspects beyond, from find a drawing style (even if stick figures is your "style"), to traversing the graphic-novel business
You Can Do a Graphic Novel is illustrated (of course) and seemingly geared toward young teens, although I think readers of any age could find takeaway wisdom from Barbara Slate.
