Library JournalMax Axiom is a supercool superhero scientist who can travel through time, shrink to atom-size, and slip on sunglasses that give him x-ray vision. All these talents let him present detailed views of science in a solid and engaging way. Sidebars and backmatter provide a glossary, interesting facts, cameos of famous people, bibliography, and links to websites. Dozens of Max Axiom books cover topics from magnetism to earthquakes, genes to the digestive system. In this one, which won Learning Magazine’s 2008 Teachers’ Choice Award for Children’s Books, Max shows readers how he solves four scientific problems, starting with choosing the best materials for building levees against flood waters. Some of the titles are available in Spanish.
