    In the End

    by Mal Peet, illustrations by Andrew Burdan

    When Billy was a young man in 1912, he saw his town torn apart by strikers and strike breakers as workers fought for their rights in the
    goldmining town of Waihī. Years later, Billy is fighting in the trenches in Europe and has become friends with another Waihī man, Don. But Don’s memories of the strike are very different from Billy’s. In a graphic novel format that is set during both wars, dramatic events lead to a revelation that changes the way Billy and Don think about “sides”.

  • The bullet cover.

    The Bullet

    by Sarah Penwarden

    “The Bullet” has been adapted as a graphic text from the story of the same name in School Journal 4.3.08. In both versions, the story is about a boy who is bullied in his new school and faces decisions that could change the course of his young life. The graphic text format is more accessible and engaging, and provides multiple opportunities for readers to access the sophisticated themes and abstract ideas of the original story. The illustrations use a gritty, raw style that highlights the sense of danger and risk. The text offers opportunities for students to build on the key competencies of managing self and relating to others.
