The Sea Swallow – Gareth Thompson
Foxtail (July 2011)
When Mary’s father the fisherman is killed in a storm, Mary uncovers a terrible war between land and sea. To save her town from being swallowed by the waves, Mary must face the wild water that took her father and go on a journey like no other.
Blankets – Craig Thompson
Top Shelf Productions (Aug 2003)
Wrapped in the landscape of a blustery Wisconsin winter, Blankets explores the sibling rivalry of two brothers growing up in the isolated country, and the budding romance of two coming-of-age lovers. A tale of security and discovery, of playfulness and tragedy, of a fall from grace and the origins of faith.
Lost at Sea – Brian Lee O’Malley
Oni Press (May 2005)
Raleigh doesn’t have a soul. A cat stole it – or at least that’s what she tells people – or at least that’s what she would tell people if she told people anything. But that would mean talking to people, and the mere thought of social interaction is terrifying. How did such a shy teenage girl end up in a car with three of her hooligan classmates on a cross-country road trip? Being forced to interact with kids her own age is a new and alarming proposition for Raleigh, but maybe it’s just what she needs – or maybe it can help her find what she needs – or maybe it can help her to realize that what she needs has been with her all along.
So Santa, I’ve been a very good girl this year and my family and friends all say I have too many books so they aren’t getting me any… I hope you find this list and send me something from it. I love graphic novels and haven’t read even of them so the two on this list would be awesome.
Also the Sea Swallow sounds like an amazing book, full of wonder and amazement, there’s a development going on up the road from me and they are integrating images and the storyline form this book into the seafront there, that’s how I came across the book!!
I hope everyone else gets everything they want and need from Santa this year but just remember to have a good time and spend the holiday season with those you love and Im sure it’ll be awesome even if you don’t!!
