  1. 1. Narrative Graphics Robyn Collinson
  2. 2. A graphic novel is a book made up of comics content. Although the word "novel" normally refers to long fictional works, the term "graphic novel" is applied broadly, and includes fiction, non-fiction, and anthologized work. It is distinguished from the term "comic book", which is used for comics periodicals. Many graphic novels are the basis of films, although some films are the basis of graphic novels, for example Coraline by Neil Gaiman was wrote in 2002 and was made into a stop motion 3D fantasy horror produced Graphic novels are rarely praised. Maus, created in 1991, by American cartoonist Art Spiegelman was the first graphic novel to win a Pulitzer Prize. Maus is the story based on Spiegelman fathers’ holocaust survival experience. The story uses postmodern techniques cross anthropomorphism to distinguish the relationship and differences between the Jews, who are portrayed as mice, the cats, who are the Germans, and the non-Jewish poles, a.k.a the pigs.
  3. 3. Children's literature or juvenile literature includes stories, books, and poems that are enjoyed by children. Modern children's literature is classified in two different ways: genre or the intended age of the reader. There is no specific description for childrens literature as it can be designed as anything children read. Childrens literature are always accompanied by pictures. There are several associations which support and fund children's literature, for example ChLa (Childrens literature association) is a non-profit company of many high up education critics who join together to support the literature academic of chidren. The most well known children book is Charlie and The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.
  4. 4. Children's literature features several types of books, the most common type of book, picture books, rhythmic books, folklore, first books, concept books, fantasy and fairytales and issue books. Picture books concentrate on pictures rather than the actual writing, the illustrations compliment the writing meaning that little text is used. Some of the most well known picture books include Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak and The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.
