Wisdom doesn’t always come with age; what do adult readers learn from challenged lives lived by the very young? In her graphic memoir, Long Red Hair, Meags Fitzgerald‘s childhood full of sleepovers, amateur fortune-telling and watching scary movies can’t hide her suspicion that she is unlike her friends. Set against the tumultuous political backdrop of late ’60s Chicago, Emil Ferris’s My Favorite Thing Is Monsters is the fictional graphic diary of 10-year-old Karen Reyes, filled with B-movie horror and pulp monster magazines iconography. Rosalie Lightning: A Graphic Memoir is Eisner-nominated cartoonist Tom Hart‘s #1 New York Times bestselling touching and beautiful graphic memoir about the untimely death of his young daughter, Rosalie.
