Picture Book & Graphic Novel Reviews

Picture books have changed a great deal since they first came into being in the mid 1700's. The subject matter covered by children's picture books these days is also remarkable ranging from fairy tales to unique stories about every subject imaginable. In addition to the picture books that have been created for smaller children, there is a whole world of picture books that are too complex for the younger reader.
