Tweeks: Comics Squad Recess!

61h2oMNqD0L._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_Hey Middle Grade Readers!  When you unload some of your trick or treat candy to the local orthodontist this weekend for cash, you might be looking for something to spend it on.  Well, since this time of year reminds us of the Scholastic Book Fair and rainy day recesses spent inside reading, we suggest: Comic Squad: Recess! It’s an anthology featuring some of the best in kids’ comics writing and drawing about the best part of school: recess!  There’s a super-secret Ninja club, a magic acorn, kickball, cupcakes and more!

Tweeks: #SDCC Interview with Writer/Artist Raina Teglemeier

14341642465_9cf3a11985_nRaina Telgemeier just might be the best middle grade author in the whole world.  She’s also probably the nicest author in the whole world…and maybe even the nicest person ever.  During San Diego Comic Con, she took some time to sit down with us to talk about her new book Sisters (check out our review Tuesday!), her other books,  what it’s like to write graphic novels for kids and how to get started as a comic artist and writer.  We ask her all the questions her readers want to know in this in-depth interview.  We love our job!
