What are they reading for fun? Babymouse!

SLJ asked children's librarians what Manga those crazy kids are reading for fun these days. (My god—are kids reading Manga for anything besides fun? Is there now boring, assigned Manga in schools?) According to Rebecca Donnelly of the Loma Colorado Public Library in Rio Rancho, NM:

... Current must-read GNs include Emmanuel Guibert’s Sardine in Outer Space (First Second/Roaring Brook), Jennifer & Matthew Holm’s “Babymouse” (Random), and Jeff Smith’s “Bone” (Scholastic).
