Parents of screen-saturated kids who are searching for the just the thing that will inspire their children to pick up a book may be in luck. From the award-winning educational software and kid-favorite gaming website Jumpstart.com, comes the first ever Graphic Novel from JumpStart and Knowledge Adventure! in cooperation with digital publisher Open Road Integrated Media.
The graphic novel is based on the popular animated online world that blends children's entertainment and education. Written by Neo and Adira Edmund, the novel introduces readers to Windy Hollows and follows a group of adventurers featured in the online program: Logan, Maggie, Nicolas, Selena and Poe as they arrive at Oakcrest School of Magic.
