Winner of the Ignatz Award for Outstanding Debut. "Beautifully simple and sweet, Liz prince portrays couples in a delightfully self-conscious way."-- Farel Dalrymple "An adorable little collection of snippets and snapshots of moments from their relationship ... the silly, gross and snuggly moments that Liz and Kevin share. A wondrous present to someone you hold dear."-- Neil Figuracion, Broken Frontier What started out as an exercise in keeping a personal comics journal, quickly evolved into Liz Prince's first solo graphic novel. Described as a mix between Jeffrey Brown and James Kochalka, Liz's comics are comprised of short vignettes that capture all the cute, gross, and endearing aspects of relationships. It's the perfect book for all those fans of autobiographical comics who want to see a happy ending.

Tomboy. Una chica ruda acompaña a una galardonada artista y autora a través de los años de su infancia y adolescencia, y explora, con humor, honestidad e intensidad, lo que significa "ser una chica". Su autora, Liz Prince, ha sido ilustradora para Adventure Time, Steven Universe y Regular Show. Al crecer, Liz Prince no era una niña muy femenina que digamos, no se ponía tutús rosas ni jugaba a ser una dulce princesa como las demás niñas de su vecindario. Pero tampoco era exactamente uno de los chicos. Era más bien algo en medio. Pero con las presiones de la secundaria, la preparatoria, los papás, la amistad y el romance empujándola hacia todos lados, ese "en medio" no era precisamente un lugar fácil en el cual estar. La crìtica ha opinado: "Divertida y cercana mirada a aquello con lo que cada niño tiene que lidiar en cierto punto de su desarrollo, descifrando quién eres verdaderamente por dentro cuando todos los demás sólo ven lo que creen que deberías ser por fuera." -Jeffrey Brown, autor de Clumsy, Jedi Academy y Darth Vader and Son- "ESPECTACULAR. Un libro que hace pensar seriamente a cualquier persona sobre los roles de género predeterminados por la sociedad." -Kirkus Reviews- "Liz Prince retrata la incomodidad y la humillación de la infancia y la adolescencia con una precisión maravillosa (por no decir dolorosa). Todo niño que tome este libro en sus manos estará al tanto de los secretos que la mayoría de nosotros no aprende sino hasta que es demasiado tarde, y cualquier adulto que lo lea traerá a la memoria una verdad esencial: que está muy bien ser exactamente quien queremos ser, no importa cuán raros nos consideren los demás. Tomboy. Una chica ruda no es un libro de autoayuda pero debería serlo." -Julia Wertz, autora de Drinking at the Movies y The Infinite Wait- "Liz Prince manda las normas de género al diablo. Una encantadora memoria que mueve a la reflexión y que no puedes dejar de leer, además de llevar en sí una gran importancia." -Ariel Shrag, autor de Adam y Potential- ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONGrowing up, Liz Prince wasn't a girly girl, dressing in pink tutus or playing Pretty Pretty princess like the other girls in her neighborhood. But she wasn't exactly one of the guys either, as she quickly learned when her Little League baseball coach exiled her to the outfield instead of letting her take the pitcher's mound. Liz was somewhere in the middle, and "Tomboy" is the story of her struggle to find the place where she belonged." Tomboy" is a graphic novel about refusing gender boundaries, yet unwittingly embracing gender stereotypes at the same time, and realizing later in life that you can be just as much of a girl in jeans and a T-shirt as you can in a pink tutu. A memoir told anecdotally, "Tomboy "follows author and zine artist Liz Prince through her early childhood into adulthood and explores her ever-evolving struggles and wishes regarding what it means to "be a girl." From staunchly refuting anything she perceived as being "girly" to the point of misogyny, to discovering throughthe punk community that your identity is whatever you make of it, regardless of your gender, "Tomboy" is as much humorous and honest as it is at points uncomfortable and heartbreaking."

Shortlisted for the UK Literacy Association's Academic Book Award 2021 There is an increasing trend in teachers using graphic novels to get their students excited about reading and writing, using both original stories and adaptations of classic works by authors such as Homer, Shakespeare, and the Brontes. However, there is surprisingly little research available about which pedagogies and classroom practices are proven to be effective. This book draws on cutting-edge research, surveys and classroom observations to provide a set of effective methods for teaching with graphic novels in the secondary English language arts classroom. These methods can be applied to a broad base of uses ranging from understanding literary criticism, critical reading, multimodal composition, to learning literary devices like foreshadowing and irony. The book begins by looking at what English language arts teachers hope to achieve in the classroom. It then considers the affordances and constraints of using graphic novels to achieve these specific goals, using some of the most successful graphic novels as examples, including Maus; Persepolis; The Nameless City; and American Born Chinese and series such as Manga Shakespeare. Finally, it helps the teacher navigate through the planning process to figure out how to best use graphic novels in their own classroom. Drawing on their extensive teaching experience, the authors offer examples from real classrooms, suggested lesson plans, and a list of teachable graphic novels organized by purpose of teaching.
