Finally, something to satisfy the many Amulet fans in my library. As I mentioned in my blog article about Amulet, my students are so sad that the series only has five volumes. Many of my students have read each book of Amulet multiple times. Kibuishi’s Copper book also circulated like crazy until our copy was lost.
So, when I found out that Kazu Kibuishi created a collection of graphic short stories, I thought I’d give these books a try in my library. I was not disappointed. While the work is not entirely that of Kazu Kibuishi exclusively, it is a really nice collection. It contains short stories from 21 authors, including one story from Kibuishi. I ordered the first three books, and they immediately started circulating. There are eight books in all, and I’ve already been asked by my students to add to our collection. While most of these stories can be understood by younger students, I would recommend them for a tween and older audience.
