My daughter has a stack of her 50 favorite picture books, and various stacks of her favorite graphic novels. She has declared favorite picture book authors and illustrators a few times (Mo Willems, Bob Staake, Shirley Parenteau + David Walker), and has fan-girled other authors (Raina Telgemeier, Shannon Hale, Suzanne Nelson). But the other day, for the first time that I can recall, she declared a particular book to be her favorite.
The book was Kristy's Big Day, the sixth book in the Baby-Sitters Club Graphix series, by Ann M. Martin and Gale Galligan. Why this one, I wondered. She explained thus:
Impeccable logic, that. I wonder if it will hold up. I have a couple of childhood favorites that certainly remain in my top 10, though my all-time favorite is one that I first read as an adult. But that was before the days of graphic novels. Time will tell!
Do you have a favorite book?
Thanks for reading, and for growing bookworms!
