- Review: School Library Journal XPress Review (10/17/2017)
This past July, an “XPress Review” for both Pix books appeared on the School Library Journal website, a very exciting development, as SLJ is an important publication for, clearly, school library collection development. You can read the review below (and see the original post here):
- Review: VOYA’s Graphically Speaking (4/29/2015)
Kat Kan, a collections development librarian specializing in graphic novels, reviewed PIX in the April 2015 issue of VOYA (Voice of Youth Advocates) Magazine, “the leading library journal dedicated to the needs of young adult librarians, the advocacy of young adults, and the promotion of young adult literature and reading.”
The magazine is subscription-only, so here’s merely the PIX review, excerpted from page 50 (and Kat Kan’s bio from page 51) of that issue (click to enlarge):
Thanks so much to Kat Kan and VOYA!
Librarians can order copies of Pix from Brodart, Baker & Taylor, Ingram, etc, etc.
