Abstract

Graphic novels have the advantage as children's literature. Didactic ideas as a requirement for children’s books are easily accepted by children readers because the graphic novels are assisted by visualization through images. In this research, two Egyptian graphic novels are appointed as research objects, namely Al-Bintu Mitslu al-Walad (A Boy-Like Girl) and Salma Ta'rifu Huquuqahaa (Salma Knows Her Rights). Both show the existence of gender and social issues involving a child’s figure named Salma. This is qualitative research by using the content analysis method. Based on the issue, data in this research which are words, phrases, sentences, and paragraphs containing social ideas are analyzed with the psychological approach of children’s development in children’s literature. The results show that both show the idea of gender equality for children and awareness of children's rights in social life. However, the ideas become a dilemma because, on the one hand, it is important as the responsibility of the author. While on the other hand the author appears to apply the ideology of adults in the text.
