Barnes & Noble is creating its first dedicated graphic novel sections for readers ages 7-12. The sections will feature more than 250 titles, including popular series such as Amulet, Wings of Fire and Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales. The sections will include graphic novels in fiction, fantasy & adventure, history, and science.
"Readership of graphic novels continues to grow and expand, with kids flocking to this popular genre," said Stephanie Fryling, B&N's v-p of merchandising, children's books. "Graphic novels are a way for kids to appreciate both reading and art, and the breadth of talent for both authors and illustrators in this category is amazing."
