SWORDS by Ben Boos, Candlewick Press
Think of this as a browsing book. Chapters give details on different types of swords: swords for kings and knights and ladies and ninas. You name it, you can find it here. The illustrations are finely detailed. Some appear photographic in their detail.
CINDERELLA: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL by Beth Bracken, Stone Arch Books
I often tell the Grimm's version of Cinderella when I booktalk to tweens and teens. This GN variant is the closest to the Grimm that I have seen. It is dark (as is the Grimm variant) with simple text accessible even to readers with limited proficiency. A glossary is included. Stone Arch is doing mighty interesting things with the GN format.
