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.

Action-Packed
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.

    Fun, comprehensive, and doesn't preach June 2, 2012
    Reviewer: Rhonda  
    My son loves science, absolutely loves to blow things up and take crazy risks, but doesn't like reading and definitely doesn't like being lectured to. Because these rules are in a fun comic book format, he was more receptive to reading and thinking about them. A list of rules for our science lab would never have been as effective as this book. He remembers the lessons he's learned from Max Axiom and the reasons behind them, which has led to positive changes in his behavior. I highly recommend this product to parents of daredevil children and any child needing to learn lab safety.

    Boring but important lesson taught memorably May 9, 2011
    Reviewer: Jennifer Schneider from Rhinelander, WI United States  
    Who WANTS to pick up and read a book about safety rules in a classroom?  How often do students tune out when teachers talk about wearing gloves, being careful, keeping things clean, etc. for a science experiment.  Kids want to just get going and see things happen! Max Axiom, super scientist, with some help from a careless over-eager student, is able to show why there should be certain rules especially when doing science experiments!  Basic principles are taught in a way that's more fun than just going through a list of rules.
