Recently, multimodal texts, i.e. texts using more than one mode to communicate with their readers, have become increasingly prominent in children’s literature. While the illustration of written texts has been a common long-time practice, the new multimodal books for children use images as an additional, original level of narrative. The general assumption in children’s literature studies is that it is easier for children to read a combination of text and images, as the images help them to understand the text. The analysis of three comic books on Roman history will show that, on the contrary, the process of understanding is actually more complex in the new multimodal texts for children: The pictorial narrative demands a more sophisticated kind of reading expertise. In addition, the task of decoding becomes more challenging when the narratives follow different intentions, which is often the case in contemporary comic books in which the pictorial narrative can be an ironic take on the written narrative.
