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.

    Learning without realizing it! May 9, 2011
    Reviewer: Jennifer Schneider from Rhinelander, WI United States  
    Super scientist Max Axiom can travel to space, ride a beam of light at the speed of light, gets to use prisms, microscopes and lasers to demonstrate anything any time he wants, eats cookies made by solar energy with kids on the street, lives by himself with his awesome dog and wraps up his day watching his big screen tv - who wouldn't want to be him?  Science portrayed as super cool and lots of fun.  My four boys love it and read these books over and over without even realizing they're learning (or re-learning) something along the way!  A great way to present science!  Light and easy reading to review the basics and connect the concepts with visuals that will stick in the kids minds.  Enjoy!
