About the Graphic Science Series:
What an incredibly unique way to teach science! Start with an ultra cool superhero scientist who can shrink to the size of an atom, or slip into a lab coat to travel through time, or even slip on a pair of sunglasses to obtain x-ray vision. Add engrossing graphics and short reader-friendly sentences, and there you have it, the Max Axiom series of graphic novels.

Max Axiom is your child's tour guide as he demonstrates and explains science in a thoroughly engaging and memorable way. These books are especially useful for children who find reading to be a drag or science a bore. Max Axiom's action-packed graphic narrative format makes science not only accessible but also attractive.

Scientific Terminology Explained
Each title is rich with detailed accurate information, scientific terminology is clearly defined and presented in a reader-friendly way. Some books also include well-done detailed diagrams to clarify the more difficult topics. Each vivid full-color book focuses on a single theme presenting it in an interesting and understandable way. All 32-page books include several pages with more facts, a glossary with kid-friendly definitions, a bibliography, and links to websites.

An Excellent Resource
Solid science and captivating graphic-novel illustrations make these books an excellent resource for your family's library. One caveat, these are published by a secular company, so occasional references to evolution may appear.

    Great series for my boys especially May 9, 2011
    Reviewer: Jennifer Schneider from Rhinelander, WI United States  
    I love that this series can be enjoyed by so many ages and is educational at the same time!  Max Axiom series is a great series for my four boys especially!  They are always drawn to graphic novels and they always want to know about how things work.  This has both!  The series reminds me of the Magic School Bus series, because Max can get bigger and smaller (walk inside ears, etc.) as he's explaining something, but since the characters are not little kids on a school bus even my older kids will read them for fun and end up reviewing the basic information they should be remembering.  It's laid out simply enough I can read it with my kindergartener and he remembers most everything, my 2nd grader can almost read it on his own (some trickier science words occasionally), and my 5th grader reads them for fun.  (Rated 5 stars by the boys and 4 by my daughter and me, who aren't that big of graphic novel fans.)  Enjoy!
