"Writing books that appeal to boys is a joy and a challenge.
Here are some “boots on the ground” perspectives from readers, teachers, and librarians, as well as invaluable insights shared by children’s authors Darren Shan, Ellen Hopkins, Tim Wynne-Jones, and break-out debut novelist, Scott Blagden on how to reach this important readership."

"If a boy is told that reading a graphic novel isn't real reading--if reading is seen as work or punishment--who's going to start to think of something as enjoyment. If boys don't develop a love of reading, they're not going to get to any of those other books that people want them to read."
