A graphic novels reading list for children grades K - 5.

The Little Maverick Graphic Novel Reading List is a recommended reading list developed by public and school librarians from the Children’s Round Table (CRT) for use by students in grades K-5. The purpose of the list is to encourage students in grades K-5 to explore a variety of current graphic novels. The Little Maverick Reading List is intended for recreational reading, not to support a specific curriculum. The list seeks balance in genre, gender appeal, interest, subject, and difficulty.

Due to the diversity of this age range, Texas librarians should purchase titles on this list according to their individual collection policies. For the purpose of the committee, graphic novels are defined to include trade compilations and original works published in a sequential art format. Such titles should incorporate acceptable literary and artistic quality with effectiveness of presentation.
