What are Graphic Novels? Graphic novels are books in which “images and text arrive together, work together, and should be read together” (Gravett, 2005, p. 11) Looking much like comics. A graphic novel is a book length story that is written and illustrated in comic book style. Coincides with the increased popularity of manga, a Japanese comic style. Teachers and librarians are seeing the growing popularity of graphic novels motivating potential to reach reluctant readers
