Guts, Smile & More! Incredible Raina Telgemeier Books

Sep 08, 2022

With signature humor and plenty of drama, Raina Telgemeier’s beloved books include coming-of-age stories that explore themes of friendship, family, inclusion, determination, crushes, the confusion of growing up, and more. 

These titles are perfect for kids who find new motivation to read when they pick up a graphic novel. Readers will be drawn into the stories by the compelling (and often hilarious!) illustrations while also improving their reading skills and building vocabulary. 

For instance, Drama is about Callie’s experiences in the theater department at her middle school. She is tasked to build a set worthy of Broadway for the school’s production and encounters some bumps along the way (like low ticket sales and drama on and off stage!).

And in Guts, Raina not only gets a terrible stomachache, but she also has to deal with highs and lows at school. This book is a thoughtful and charming story about how Raina learns to deal with anxiety and stand up to the mean girl in school.
