Genres: Graphic Novel
Alison Dare: Indiana Jones meets Lara Croft in fabulous, graphic adventures.Alison Dare is not your typical twelve-year-old. She's the daughter of an archaeologist/adventurer and the masked hero known as the Blue Scarab. To top it off, she's also the niece of an international super-spy; it's no surprise that a craving for danger is in her blood! Unfortunately, her parents have locked her away at the prestigious St. Joan's Academy for Girls, hoping that this would lead to a more "normal" life for their daughter.
But despite all the strict rules at the school, Alison and her best pals - Wendy and Dot - somehow manage to find themselves involved in adventures that rival those of Alison's globetrotting, planet-saving relatives. Whether it's magic genies, super-powered bank robbers, or a dastardly baron bent on world domination, Alison Dare delivers the best thrills since Indiana Jones and more action than Lara Croft!
I am pleased to be apart of a blog tour promoting two books in a graphic novel series called Alison Dare through Tundra Books. If you know me at all, you know that I love my graphic novels and jump at any chance to read them.
First off, a little about the books:
I really dug these graphic novels. Alison is the daughter of a superhero and an archeologist and definitely is not beyond getting into trouble with her own adventures. I love the style of these books, along with the characters and the constantly moving plot. They're the type of graphic novels I want in my elementary school library and they're definitely making it on the list for next year. I think it offers a lot to kids who like superheros and those who like real life stories. It's a great blend of genres, which is something we need more of in this world. I believe that both boys and girls will love these graphic novels and I look forward to reading more about Alison and her adventures.
Along with reading the books, there's a fun contest going on for a prize pack of the Alison books. Check out the full details over on Tundra's blog.
Basically, you print out and cut out a picture of Alison, take a fun picture and add a caption. Here's mine:
