Book 4 of the Bestselling AMULET Graphic Novel Series Has Arrived! #GIVEAWAY

Graphic novels have always been popular with kids and teens. Of course, during my childhood, we called them comic books. But now they have much more complex storylines, dramatic elements, and sophisticated artistry. Many of them really are a work of art and just as absorbing as a traditional novel. The AMULET graphic novel series, written and illustrated by Kazu Kibuishi, is extremely popular with kids aged 9-12. (It’s a New York Times bestselling series!) And Scholastic just published the fourth book in the series: AMULET Book Four: The Last Council. Here’s a look at what it’s all about!



[Email subscribers, please click on the title of this post to access the video online.]

And here’s a synopsis of the book: Emily and her friends think they’ll find the help they need in Cielis, but something isn’t right. Streets that were once busy are deserted, and the townspeople who are left live in fear. Emily is soon escorted to the Academy, where she’s expected to compete for a spot on the Guardian Council, a group of the most powerful Stonekeepers. But as the number of competitors gets smaller and smaller, an awful secret is slowly uncovered -- a secret that, if left buried, means the certain destruction of everything Emily fights for.

If your children or grandchildren love graphic or fantasy novels, they’ll want to check out the AMULET series. (Or perhaps they’re already fans!) They’ll soon find out why Kirkus Reviews calls this series “a must for all fantasy fans.” And pay a visit to the following AMULET websites at  www.scholastic.com/amulet and www.boltcity.com/amulet. AMULET Book Four: The Last Council is sure to be another hit in this exciting graphic novel series.
