Graphic Novel Book Club

Come to Rincon Valley Library's new monthly Graphic Novel Book Club, designed for grades 4-6. Our 4th meeting will be held on Friday, August 4, 2019 at 3:30pm. Expect snacks!

August's book is Book 1 in the 5 Worlds saga: The Sand Warrior by creative team Mark Siegel, Alexis Siegel, Xanthe Bouma, Matt Rockefeller, and Boya Sun. 

Pick up a copy of The Sand Warrior at the Rincon Children's Reference Desk while supplies last!

 

From the publisher's description:

The Five Worlds are on the brink of extinction unless five ancient and mysterious beacons are lit. When war erupts, three unlikely heroes will discover there’s more to themselves—and more to their worlds—than meets the eye. . . .
 
   • Oona Lee, the clumsiest student at the Sand Dancer Academy, is a fighter with a destiny bigger than she could ever imagine.
 
   • An Tzu, a boy from the poorest slums, has a surprising gift and a knack for getting out of sticky situations. 
 
   • Jax Amboy is the star athlete who is beloved by an entire galaxy, but what good is that when he has no real friends? 
 
When these three kids are forced to team up on an epic quest, it will take not one, not two, but 5 WORLDS to contain all the magic and adventure!
 
"A magical journey, as fun as it is beautiful!” Kazu Kibuishi, #1 New York Times bestselling creator of AMULET

"Bang-zoom . . . a series that promises to be epic."—The New York Times

“This stellar team has created a gorgeous and entrancing world like no other!” Noelle Stevenson, New York Times bestselling author of Nimona
 
“Epic action, adventure, and mystery will draw you in, but the heartfelt characters and their seemingly impossible journey will keep you turning the pages.” —Lisa Yee, author of the DC Super Hero Girls™ series
