Dinosaurs Across America go interactive!

I am proud to announce that our Dinosaurs Across America by Phil Yeh may have become the FIRST fully interactive graphic novel!

This book has been a successful fun tool for kids to learn about US Geography for years as a comic book Phil sold at his numerous appearances around schools and libraries across the country advocating for literacy through comics. We then did with him the full color graphic novel which has gone to press 3 times with over 15,000 sold. It’s a Library Media Connection Editor’s Choice and has received many great reviews.

We’re all pretty ignorant when it comes to geography, these comics have made it easy and fun for kids to learn the facts about all 50 states.

And now, thanks to Koobits, an interactive book developer, it comes to your iPad  screen as well as an e-book for PC. Here is a presentation along with video of what it looks like.

This is the just the first of a series of announcements we’ll be making this year that set NBM on a new course. Stay tuned!

Phil Yeh to do a mural at L.A. Times Bookfair and BEA

Phil Yeh, author of Dinosaurs Across America which has been praised as a great fun way to get kids to learn about US geography will be touring for this book and on behalf of Cartoonists Across America, his organization in support of literacy through comics. That includes appearances at the L.A. Times Bookfair at the Hideho comics store booth later this month and around the Book Expo America convention in NY, late May. At most of his appearances he does a mural and gets fellow artists and kids to join in on the fun. Go meet him! Believe us when we say he is lively and opinionated. Here’s his latest schedule:
