A graphic novel based on Jostein Gaarder's Sophie's World. It's updated (at the beginning Sophie and a friend are planning to meet at a climate protest) but also a bit more accessible than the original, which was a bestseller in the 1990s. While the original Sophie's World was written for teenagers, it's actually a little hard to understand unless you already know a bit about philosophy. This version, adapted by Belgian comics writer Vincent Zabus, presumes no knowledge and so is a good way for complete beginners to start out on philosophy.
