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.

    Great Info., Less the Global Warming Pap May 29, 2012
    Reviewer: One Nation Under God  
    We have found the Max Axiom series to be good at explaining tough concepts in an understandable way and with great pictures. However, it does dedicate four pages to the Global Warming hoax. Some others have content about "billions of years" (not the Photosynthesis one). I chose to white out the lies and glue the offending pages together. Otherwise, it's a great add to your intoductory science info.

    Pass the teaching on to someone else! May 9, 2011
    Reviewer: Jennifer Schneider from Rhinelander, WI United States  
    Start teaching the basics of science to your kids with these books!  Science is so hard for me to teach because I find it so boring - especially Photosynthesis?  I could sum it up in one sentence!  But this book explains and SHOWS the details in an exciting and memorable way for your kids so that the concepts stick with them!  Follow Max Axiom, super scientist, as he shrinks to the size of atoms and grows bigger than the earth and shows you how the world works from the scientific perspective.  He breaks down the harder concepts into simple ones, and uses his flashy science gadgets and abilities to attract the readers!  My kids read these just for fun and don't even realize they're learning!  This is an awesome series they've read again and again!
