ALL SCHOOL AUTHOR VISIT!
Who Am I?
My name is Barry Deutsch. I’m the author and illustrator of the Hereville graphic novels, which are about “yet another troll-fighting 11-year-old Orthodox Jewish girl.”
Hereville books have been awarded the Oregon Book Award, the Sydney Taylor Book Award, the Cybil Award, and the Oregon Spirit Book Award.
Hereville books have received ten starred reviews so far, including reviews from Publisher’s Weekly, Kirkus Reviews and School Library Journal. The first Hereville was described by aSchool Library Journal reviewer as “the best graphic novel of 2010 for kids. Bar none.”
More importantly, kids love graphic novels! Kids are used to looking at books in the classroom, and watching cartoons or reading comics on their own time, but graphic novels combine the intensity of storytelling with the fun of images. They teach students to read, but more, to enjoy reading–which may be the most important skill of all!
