New graphic novels for patrons whose reading taste doesn’t fit between the lines.
Steer your patrons to Mitchell Zuckoff’s retelling of the November 1942 crash of a U.S. cargo plane into the Greenland Ice Cap, the loss of the B-17 sent to find it, and the loss of a Grumman Duck amphibious plane that had managed to rescue one B-17 crew member. LJ’s readers’ advisory suggests World War II narratives read-alikes, read-arounds, and watch-alikes.
Experience the brilliance of audiobook narrator Simon Prebble in his own voice, listen-alikes, listen-arounds, and listen-agains. Readers’ advisory recommends Clarke’s Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell; Morgenstern’s The Night Circus; Eliot’s Middlemarch, Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities among others to get reading patrons listening.
