Opinion: A Wrinkle In Time, Scholastic, and Why Kids Are the Future of Comics Again
AV Club (Blog)
When my kids bring home the Scholastic Book Club flyers from school, they're much heavier on comics than they were in my day, when the best I could've hoped for was a black-and-white paperback of Superman stories (which I still have!) and maybe a Garfield collection or two. In addition to the long lists of Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries books in the Scholastic flyers, my kids can now select multiple Doug TenNapel adventure comics, or Brian Selznick's text/pictures hybrids Wonderstruck and The Invention Of Hugo Cabret, or something from the increasing number of children's books that work comics-style storytelling into their overall design.
