    I need to read the 2 Graphic Novels 101 that were published in Horn Book and are listed here, but I’m getting a 404 message on that site. Also, I am looking for Reading Lessons by Hollis Margaret Rudiger also in the same edition of Horn Book but seemingly impossible to find.

    Thanks in advance for any help that you can provide.

    Hello Andrea!

    I just checked the links, and it turns out they’ve changed the location of the PDFs. However, I just updated the links, and they should now work. Let me know if you have any more trouble getting to those articles.

    Thanks for this, Robin. Andrea is my Independent Study student, and I am glad to see these accessible. Are you going to post the last page Cadenza article in that Horn Book issue, also?
