CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS AND ILLUSTRATORS REIMAGINE
GREAT WORKS OF LITERATURE FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Graphic Canon Kid Lit front cover

The Definitive Anthology of
Kid’s Lit as Graphics and Visuals

In this follow-up volume to the lauded Graphic Canon series, master anthologist Russ Kick shows adults everywhere that great children’s literature is great literature, period. And that it’s not just for children.

The original three-volume anthology The Graphic Canon presented the world’s classic literature–from ancient times to the late twentieth century–as eye-popping comics, illustrations, and other visual forms. In this follow-up volume, young people’s literature through the ages is given new life by the best comics artists and illustrators. Fairy tales, fables, fantastical adventures, young adult novels, swashbuckling yarns, your favorite stories from childhood and your teenage years . . . they’re all here, in all their original complexity and strangeness, before they were censored or sanitized.
