About The World As You Know It
The World as You Know It is an original graphic novel created by Study Island and its Original Island Inks imprint. It is a three book series following the adventures of Solomon, a Native American middle school student; Lukas, a deaf, foreign exchange student from Cameroon; and Esperanza, an ambitious Hispanic girl who guides Solomon and Lukas on their adventures. The trio believes their world is only as big as their front yard. When the three are shown what awaits them just under the surface of the world they know, they call into question what they know about that world and each other. It is a visual delight mixing one part mystery, one part fantasy, and one part discovery that sends the world on its head.
This app includes all ten chapters of Volume 1 of The World As You Know It. Volume 1 contains over 600 animated slides. The novel can be read on its own, or it can be used as a supplement to Study Island's online Reading: Revisited and Reconsidered program.
