Slide 7: I always like to throw in a picture book in my recommendations. My favorite graphic novel style picture book is Blackout by John Rocco. What I think is important about Blackout is that there is a non-binary main character. When I read this book with my students I always ask them if they think the main character is a boy or a girl and why. It’s really interesting to hear their responses.
