"This book is a cogent reminder that an expansive defition of 'literary text' is necessary if we are to reach out to all students in our classrooms. A highly useful resource for teachers who wish to explore using graphic novels as part of their curriculum." -- Doug Buehl, Adolescent Literacy Consultant "The literacy I want my students to possess involves more than simply being able to read and write. Just as vision entails more than seeing, being visually literate means that students can interpret and reflect upon images as well as words. Frey and Fisher's collection of essays will help you help your students develop the literacy they need for this brave new century." -- Carol Jago, Director, California Reading and Literature Project "This book puts into practice what we've long known but often ignored: one picture is indeed worth a thousand words! The chapters offer an up close and practical look at how images in all their many forms can be used to motivate reluctant readers." -- Donna E. Alvermann, Distinguished Research Professor
