Graphic novels often tackle serious issues, and this engaging series is no exception, as we see a boy dealing with school bullies. The Knights of the Lunch Table series offers a funny, empathetic look at the bullying behavior so many children experience at school. Readers might not have been on the receiving end of physical bullying, but most have, at some point, felt like Artie: picked on just for existing. But here, Artie stands up and is true to himself, with the help of a couple of close friends and a teacher who looks out for him. The series targets ages 7-11, but might be better for the older end of that range, readers who can process the deeper issues. That said, Artie and his friends have fun with their own gang, knights gathered around their round lunch table, joking, and happy to be together.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
