The Kids Read Comics Celebration is a totally free event that unites kids, teens, parents, teachers and librarians with professional artists and writers from the comics and animation fields. Our goal is to introduce kids to worlds of imagination while unlocking their creative impulses, and to serve that goal, the convention features:
– hands-on workshops
– panels and presentations for kids, families, and educators
– a chance for kids to meet and chat with comics and animation professionals
– the opportunity for kids to have their own art portfolios reviewed
Our celebration will be held at the Ann Arbor District Library in downtown Ann Arbor, which will host an artist alley and tons of hands-on workshops!
We hope to see you there!

Comments Off on ON – Little Island Comics Grand Opening
The Beguiling is pleased to announce the Grand Opening of North America’s first children’s comic shop—Little Island Comics! Offering the widest possible array of graphic novels, manga and comics for people 12 years old and younger, Little Island Comics had a successful soft open in early September. Little Island Comics’ inaugural events on the first weekend of October 2011 will mark the debut of its event space with visits from local comics creators and the launch of Claudia Dávila’s new book Luz Sees the Light.
Little Island’s Grand Opening festivities will be a celebration of children’s comics and of Toronto’s comics community. A stellar schedule of local creator visits will be augmented by informal activities for kids from open to close each day during the Grand Opening weekend. As well, select titles will be offered at door-crasher prices, making Little Island Comics’ Grand Opening weekend an ideal time to stock your comics library!
Scheduled creator appearances include:
Saturday October 1st
1:00pm – Fiona Smyth (The Never Weres)
3:00pm – LAUNCH: Claudia Dávila (Luz Sees the Light)
Sunday October 2nd

Little Island Comics is located on Bathurst Street just south of Bloor, a short block from its parent store and just a few doors away from the recently-moved Sonic Boom record shop, making their Mirvish Village neighbourhood a single stop for comics and culture for the whole family! Through a schedule of kids’ events and how-to comics workshops, Little Island will inspire a new generation of comics writers and artists!
