I LIKE TO READ COMICS: A new early reader series that uses the strong, unique relationship between image and text in comics to assist developing readers.
AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR: A trusted name when it comes to early readers, Geisel medalist Ethan Long’s foray into early reader comics is a perfect match.
COMICS ARE HOT: Sales of graphic novels and comics for young readers have grown exponentially over the last few years. TOON Books has had great success in this market.
TEAMWORK: Ethan cleverly weaves lessons on sportsmanship and how to be a better teammate into this hilarious narrative.
“This early reader’s simple format allows beginner readers to remain focused on the text while enjoying splash pages, sound effects, and the small details that make the visual experience of a comic so much fun…. Hoggy’s story is also a well-crafted lesson in how to deliver a meaningful apology.”—Kirkus Reviews
“This colorful friendship story is an approachable introduction to graphic novels for early readers.”—School Library Journal
“Long brings an invitingly cartoonish style to the artwork in this I Like to Read Comics book, with bright colors and dynamic motion…. Long’s play on the term ball hog makes for a comical premise, and the resolution of the friendship conflict will resonate with plenty of kids.”—Booklist
