The Winning Book for October!

Right up until the final day to vote it looked like it would be a tie between Montréal au fil du temps and Ghosts. And then dramatically Ghosts pulled into the lead by a huge margin!


The author of Ghosts, Raina Telgemeier, has written and illustrated several graphic novels. Which ones have you read?


We also had some interesting suggestions for other books: Neil Flambé, Noémie, Guinness World Records and for the science fans out there, Everything You Need to Ace Science in One Big Fat Notebook.

The next poll starts on November 6th. See you then!
