CLAw reading lists

Literacy charity CLAw have issued a series of Recommended Reading Lists for comics readers. There are three lists for 8-11 year olds, 11-16 year olds, and 16+ year olds.

What is CLAw? From their website:

Comics Literacy Awareness (CLAw) is an exciting new literacy charity formed by a group of passionate and highly experienced trustees from the fields of education and comics.
The mission of CLAw is to dramatically improve the literacy levels of UK children through the medium of comics and graphic novels. CLAw will also aim to raise the profile, image and respectability of comics and graphic novels as both a valid art form and as works of literature.

They are also responsible for appointing Dave Gibbons as the first Comics Laureate to “to act as an ambassador for comics and their potential to improve literacy.”
