Dylan just moved to a new house, with no friends, and a mother who doesn’t have time for him. Luckily, he has his grandad. Together, they are Red Rocket and Kid Cosmo, who save the universe every day with the power of imagination! But one day, Dylan learns that his grandad has gone to a “better place.” Dylan, dressed as Kid Cosmo, sets off on a grand adventure to find him.

In this new video, Laura and her daughter Ruby explore the world of graphic novels— stories that are illustrated in the style of a comic.

They share three very different graphic novels. Find out more about Better Place and what readers can expect in this book.
