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.

    Science made simple! May 9, 2011
    Reviewer: Jennifer Schneider from Rhinelander, WI United States  
    In this graphic novel series, super scientist, Max Axiom, shows fun activities  that correlate to science concepts and help  readers understand science easier.    In the World of Food Chains, of course it helps that he can shrink to the size of insects to show the world from that perspective.  He also uses his super gadgets (like his xray goggles to see through rotten logs) to help show us how things work.  A fun series that just happens to be educational as well.  An excellent review of information for my older kids because they read these just for fun, and a great introduction into the world of science concepts for my younger kids.  Enjoy!
