  • Results of the Book Fair
    In four days, School #7 collected $1,900 in sales.
    This is the greatest amount of sales Scholastic has on file for School #7
    We reached the $1,801 threshold needed to receive the cash option
  • Breakdown of Profits
    25% of sales=School #7 cash profit
    $1,900 *.25 = $475
    The Library received $275 in profit
    $200 went to the Home School Council
    How will the Library use this money?

    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.
