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.

    Super Scientist - the character for great reading! May 9, 2011
    Reviewer: Jennifer Schneider from Rhinelander, WI United States  
    Max Axiom, super scientist, is able to change size, teleport anywhere in the world instantly, uses super cool scientist equipment and use his x-ray vision to show us the science in the world and how things work.  He's friendly, smart, and super cool - a great character with a knack for making science basics exciting.  My kids read these for fun and learn without realizing it!  A great review for my older kids and a great way to introduce the basic concepts for my younger ones.   The Electricity book is something all my kids are interested in, and something they can understand much more easily by viewing the process in the book than me just explaining it to them.  Enjoy!
