    According to the Arbiter of Power Tool Reality, this is not a drill.

    There’s the question of where’s the line between booklets and books on soft-bound titles, but as far as the school assignments are concerned, the main criterium is whether the teacher accepts that graphic novel as a book for the report they requested.

    I suspect that in most grade schools, graphic novels aren’t allowed. You have to go take a “graphic novel” class in college. But I’m a fogy, so I could well be out of touch.

    I thought that the real arbiter of book reality was a chicken…

    Graphic Novels are just another form of telling a story.

    It sounds like the Arbiter of Book Reality is the unicorn equivalent of Dakota’s mother.

    What does she say about e-books? That might be the most divisive subject among book-readers. (For the record, I think e-books are real books.)

    I recommend going to the chicken arbiter of book reality: "Book book book book . . . "

    I think the Arbiter Of Book Reality has something wrong with her brain besides being a crank.

    And yet I am hoping we’ll get to meet her anyway.

    I’m surprised no one yet has mentioned the Heart of the City continuity that addressed this very question:

    Marigold’s wording suggests that she completely disagrees with the Arbiter on what isn’t a book.

    All books are "real’; whether you believe them or not is up to you and you alone…
