One day, The Chronicles of Deltovia will be published, and then Misha, June, and Ollie will be famous authors (and will get their revenge on that kid who made fun of their drawing skills). Until then, the three friends share this journal, sketchbook, and novel-in-progress, and we get to read along while they imagine the fantasy world of Deltovia and deal with middle school gym class. Our household 6th-grader loved this hilarious, inventive book by the author of the comic strip Nancy.

I read this in its original iteration, Clan Apis, in probably 2006 when I was 10 and Very Scared Of Bees. I am not exaggerating when I say it changed my relationship to bees entirely - I went from fear and mistrust to awe, appreciation, and curiosity. Jay Hosler's approach to what is essentially an explanation of What Bees Are is funny, interesting, and moving, and his artwork is top-tier.

This graphic memoir about Laura Gao's experience as a queer immigrant from Wuhan to Texas is great — funny, infuriating, and heart wrenching in turns, with a really smart and compelling approach to rendering bilingual conversation. Throw in Laura Gao and Weiwei Xu's expressive lines, gorgeous palettes, and energetic composition, and you've got a really lovely comic!
