Raina Telgemeier’s new graphic novel, Ghosts, is out today. I created this piece to celebrate her book birthday because I love her work and particularly love Ghosts. Raina creates masterful, accessible graphic novels and has introduced comics to a generation of girls. I not only admire her work as an artist and writer, but I commend her for taking a step out of her own voice into a new, diverse voice and creating Cat and Maya and their mixed race family. I cannot wait to read this with my daughter in a few years.
If you don’t know Raina’s work – get a copy of ghosts, smile, drama or sisters at your local bookstore or library. You will not regret it.
Happy, happy book birthday, Raina!
