ALEX RIDER GRAPHIC NOVELS #1-5 REVIEW + DISCUSSION // Let out your inner kid with these graphic novels!

Hey guys, today I am coming at you with a new review. Today I want to talk about one of my favourite middle-grade series, this one being a graphic novel series! I have read all of these in the original novel format and I was super excited to read them all again in graphic novel format too!

I used to read this series when I was younger. The original series was one of my favourites, next to Harry Potter and Percy Jackson. I was constantly re-reading the books so you can imagine how excited I was to find out about the graphic novel series.

Each book in this series is amazing. I think it would be great for a younger reader, but it is still suitable for all ages, I mean, I’m an adult and I still loved them! I think this series is perfect for younger readers who enjoy video games or spy stories. This is particularly great if you enjoy the action with less of the details, more like you would get in a movie. In the books, you get more of the details, whereas, the graphic novels are more of the main outline of the story.

The artwork is also really amazing in this series, though the art and the colouring does change in book 5. The writing and art is really easy to understand so this is a perfect starting point to get kids into reading.

WHY MORE KIDS SHOULD READ GRAPHIC NOVELS!

This series is amazing like I said before, it can be a really brilliant series for kids getting into reading. I loved these books when I was younger, in my last year in primary school, I pretty much spent most of my time in the library just reading the Skeleton Key (book 3) graphic novel.

Unpopular opinion but, I think it’s more important for kids to read graphic novels before normal books. It makes sense, we start kids off reading picture books so reading graphic novels is a great next step. Graphic novels are also really fun, not only do they invite creativity in younger readers but, they help segway into normal novels. And besides, novels aren’t for everyone – a lot of people would much rather read a comic or graphic novel.

  1. Oh, I didn’t know they made these books into graphic novels! That’s awesome! I remember really enjoying the movie when it came out. I think the read the first book and enjoyed it as well. I’ll have to check these out because I’m trying to broaden my reading 🙂
