In this action-packed cartooning adventure, kids will have as much fun making comics as reading them!

Once upon a time . . . a princess tried to make a comic. And with the help of a magical cartooning elf, she learned how – well enough to draw her way out of an encounter with a dangerous dragon, near-death by drowning, and into her very own adventure! Like the princess, young readers will discover that they already have the drawing and writing skills it takes to make a comic – they just need a little know-how. And Adventures in Cartooning supplies just that.

    I am in 6th grade going into 7th and I still like this book! It is a good intro to cartooning, and it was funny as well. There is also a Christmas version of this book, and it is slightly different from the original. I would recommend both to kids aged 6 - 12.

        This is a great book for younger kids. It is good for ages 6-9. It was up for a bluestem award in 2012 and won. This is so funny.
