Hi folks,

Would anyone be willing to share how they are shelving graphic novels in
their kids/tweens collections? With the recent uptick in the number of
beginning reader and transitional titles available in graphic novel format,
I'm seeing a vital need to distinguish between them (e.g. middle grade
graphic novel vs. beginning reader graphic novel), instead of just shelving
them all together in a "kids graphic novels" section/collection.

Right now my instinct is to shelve the introductory graphic novels with the
beginning readers and add the our GN genre/spine label, but I'm quite
curious what everyone else is doing or considering.
