JUVENILE NONFICTION / Comics & Graphic Novels / General
Join two best friends—a mole and vole—on their everyday expeditions to find beautiful plants, meet new animals, and learn more about the world all around them in this nonfiction graphic novel.

Each day, Mole and Vole venture out into the world – never forgetting their nature journal! – to see what they can find in their own backyard. From pigeons and jumping spiders to swamp milkweed and maple trees, these two explorers get to know every part of their local environment. But after an accidental move from the country to the city, Mole and Vole worry that everything will be different. As they explore, they discover plants to look at and animals to meet in their new home as well.
 
The story of these two best friends brings to life a nonfiction adventure of finding wonder in nature everywhere – no matter where you live. This book concludes with fun activities for kids to do at home.

Key Selling Points



GROWING CATEGORY: On the heels of the success of the Pizza and Taco series (by Stephen Shaksan), it’s undeniable that chapter book graphic novels are attracting readers; this category is the fastest growing one in kids comics. The combination of writing and art (and simple, slow-paced panels and text) make these a great books for any kid looking to move up from picture books and readers.



SCIENCE AND NATURE = GREAT NONFICTION: This is the perfect book for any kid interested in exploring the nature in their own lives, for readers who live both in the country and in the city. And this graphic novel is one of the first nonfiction graphic novels for the chapter book audience. Kids nonfiction is a growing, as teachers, librarians, and parents look for books that are both fun and educational for kids. Expedition Backyard is an A+ example of the category.



ACTIVITIES AHOY: Want to know how to keep a nature journal? How to join and grow things in a community garden? How to stop birds from hitting your windows? How to compost at home? You will have to buy this book to answer any of these questions – it concludes with illustrated nature activities from Mole and Vole.
