My son asked me to make quiche last week.
Not something you expect to hear from a 10-year-old, especially one who tends to only eat food he's sure he likes. But when he showed me the recipe he wanted me to make, I had to laugh. Because it was in here.
Yeah. Who knew a graphic novel could make my kids try something new?
I've written about the Bone Series before. Author Jeff Smith started off publishing them himself. Word of mouth and the internet made these books wildly popular. They appeal to reluctant readers, and girls read them just as much as boys.
But did you know that they're #3 on ALA's list of Top 10 Banned Graphic Novels? Figures. What would you expect from a book that encourages kids to eat quiche?
Just for the record, the recipe is DELICIOUS! Thanks, Jeff :D
