This paper reports on aspects of two qualitative studies which focused on children’s interests in comics. The earlier study (Millard, 1997) was part of a larger survey of 254 boys’ and girls’ reading interests, sampled at the point of transition between primary and secondary school. The second study, which forms the main body of this paper, explores the reactions to a home-school comic lending library based in three primary classrooms over a period of seven weeks. Results from both studies are discussed in this paper and the implications for the development of the primary school literacy curriculum explored.
