Amulet. Book 1, The Stonekeeper by Kazu Kibuishi

This graphic novel has a very powerful beginning that pulls the reader into the story immediately. Don’t let the fact that the main character is a girl keep you from using this title with boys. There is enough action and mystery in the story to keep them reading.

Activity: The book ends as the house morphs into a robot vehicle that travels on to the next adventure. So, using Legos we gave the boys the opportunity to create their own transforming machine. We gave them tons of Legos with many parts and pieces and let the boys go at it. Don't know who had more fun, the young guys or the teen guys?
