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.

    Magnetic! February 18, 2010
    Reviewer: Joshua M, age 11 from Maryville, TN United States  
    "The Attractive Story of Magnetism" is a terrific book about how magnets attract each other.  It is a story about Max Axiom.  I read about who he was in the back.  It told me that using his special lab coat, he can travel through space and time and he can also shrink to the size of an atom!  His glasses allow him to see through things, too.  But those are not his super powers.  His super powers are degrees in every known science.  Once he came back from learning about every kind of science, he was ready to share his knowledge with everyone.  There is just one problem with this book that I can think of.  They put the "biography" of Max Axiom in the back!  So you read the whole story and THEN you read his little bio - and then you just HAVE to read the story again.  So you have to read it at least twice.  (Written by an 11-year-old.)
