The Pinkelton’s went to the beach last week and took some fine reading materials with us. They were mostly graphic novels/comic books; with the exception of mommy’s ten pound Vogue fall issue. More about my hits and misses from that tome on the next post. Our picks fell into just about any category you could hope for: funny, educational, rebellious and down right brilliant. They were:
I had the chance to read this first book in a trilogy by and about the life and times of civil rights leader Congressman John Lewis. The collection of stories from his youth raising chickens to his participation in many lunch counter sit-ins spans a distant time; but covers struggles that continue to exist today.

The kid is a fan of any superhero so this book is a big hit. Art Balthazar creates short and funny adventures for these young offspring of some of our most well-loved comic book characters. All of the books in this series include mazes, puzzles, and object finding activities in between the humorous stories. Click here to get one for your own little hero.
The husband had his face in this book for most of our trip. This tale is one of paranoia, journalism, politics and many other themes that are relevant in present times. The protagonist Spider Jerusalem is no hero and this quality make him pretty relatable given his journey and the dire circumstances of the world he lives in.

What are you guys reading as we head into fall?
