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.

    Didn't work for my son June 1, 2012
    Reviewer: Bev  
    I thought my son who loves volcanoes would love this, but the graphics were way too busy for him. It was overwhelming for him to try to decide where to read, as everything seemed to jump out at him at the same time. He was very distracted by the whole thing, and wouldn't read it. But I can see where another child would think it was great. Just didn't work well for my son.

    My son loves it... October 25, 2011
    Reviewer: Jolin Housewright from Frisco, TX United States  
    My son loves graphic novels, and he loves volcanoes, and he SOOO wants to be able to read this!  I love that it is encouraging him in his desire to read, and pushing his level.  He does spend a lot of time looking at it and reading the parts he can.  He is 7.5, and reading pretty close to reading level.  However, they are still above his level, so if you're wondering about the reading level, its a little above late first grade level. HTH!

    Add pictures to your science lessons! May 9, 2011
    Reviewer: Jennifer Schneider from Rhinelander, WI United States  
    Graphic novels are a favorite around our home, especially to my four boys, and I am always easily persuaded to purchase them if they can learn something educational without realizing it like this series!  Add a superhero (super scientist even) like Max, and the boys will read these as soon as they arrive in the mailbox.  I know this series is re-read frequently as I find them around the house all the time, and I love it!  It just reinforces the basic science information they have been learning the last few years.   This title about exploding, fiery volcanoes is, of course, an instant hit here as well!  Enjoy!
