" The history of comics told for middle grade readers.Lexiles high - 1030, but will hold their interest due to the content " said.

" A great primer on the history of comic books. For early readers. " said.

" History of Fun Stuff is a new Ready to Read series. Readers learn the story of comics and its other forms as it evolves through the ages. Also serves as a great introduction on how to familiarize oneself on reading comics. Includes activities in the back. I’ll probably check out more in the series. " said.

"This was a great introduction to comic books for today's youth! I'm a bit jealous: I'd have been so excited to buy this for the library if it had come out while I was still there! It gives a clear explanation of the history...starting with cavemen! I also loved the back matter which extended the discussion. There is a great multicultural section titled comics around the world (Tintin, Asterix and much more!). There is also a section on tools of the trade and how to make your own comics. Finally, there is a pretty decent quiz! (why yes, I dd ace it). I really like this series and will be looking for more of them. This one shows what I've always maintained about kids' nonfiction: it is an excellent place for adults to start exploring a subject they know nothing or very little, about! Note that this book is not a graphic novel. It is a regular nonfiction book, with only an occasional cartoon like illustration." said.

"Synopsis: "Now beginning readers can learn all about the history of comics, graphic novels, manga, and more in this installment of the nonfiction Level 3 Ready-to-Read series about the history of fun stuff!

Do you know how comics, graphic novels, and manga came to be? Or that they have their roots in cave drawings? Did you know that Benjamin Franklin is credited as having the first cartoon in an American newspaper? Ever wonder who put the fun in the Funny Pages? Become a History of Fun Stuff Expert on the funny history of comic strips, graphic novels, manga, and more, and amaze your friends with all you’ve learned in this fun, fact-filled Level 3 Ready-to-Read!

A special section at the back of the book includes Common Core–vetted extras on subjects like science, social studies, and math, and there’s even a fun quiz so readers can test themselves to see what they’ve learned! Learning about history has never been so much fun!"


My Review: This is a fun introduction to the world of comics. It is a level 3 reader and chances are if your young reader is at this level, they can also be enjoying comic books. I like how there is a lot of history in this book but it isn't overly stuffed with it. The history is also made fun and included some facts even I didn't know. This is a fun way to include non-fiction books into a young readers library too. At the end of the book there are also fun ideas to get them started making their own comics too.
" said.

" Some of this stuff I remember from having read "Superman: The High-Flying History of the Man of Steel" 3 years ago. It's like going over what I first read as a boy! " said.

" 4 StarsI am not really a big into comic books because they are just not my type of reading, but after reading this book I really likes it. I was just so cute read. I am glad that I gave this book a try, because if I did not then I would be missing out on a lot. " said.
