Lynne Clark at South Bromsgrove High School says: “This year I decided to put a toe into the waters of the Graphic Novel and Manga (many thanks to the SLA Midlands Branch and Peters booksellers) and subsequently we are taking part in the Stan Lee Excelsior Award which has been masterminded by Paul Register, the Learning Resource Centre Manager at Ecclesfield School in Sheffield. The kids love reading Graphic Novels – it’s really accessible to all students and the easy voting system appeals. I’m really surprised at the response from the students, many progressing from the ‘grunt’ stage to interesting and engaging conversation. “
