Amulet is a really good YA graphic novel. I am jumping into the story a little late with book three, but so what, this is just fun. I want to get all the info out of the way first that way we can just discuss the graphic novel and enjoy ourselves.

Graphix is an imprint of Scholastic and you can visit their website through them, thus the link. I enjoyed this on many levels, not just because I could share this with my younger children. The artwork felt safe and inviting, really right on the mark for this type of graphic novel. The edges were round and soft, the bad guys didn’t look so menacing, and even the gadgets and weapons looked non- threating: all plusses in my book. The dialogue fit well and seemed to be on a good level for just about any audience, not talking down or seemingly out of reach. I even enjoyed the over protective Mother as she doted on her children, all good stuff. The adventure is good enough and original enough not to bore; the dialogue is nice and the artwork is excellent. I ask you: what more could one want from a vehicle such as this? Not much, it hit all the marks for this graphic novel reader. Check it out, with your kids no less, sharing is fun.
