Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michael Jung
Fantastic Voyage meets comic books in this graphic novel that takes kids on an expedition through the human digestive system. While waiting for his lunch at a diner, super scientist Max Atom decides to explore the process of digestion by shrinking down and hitching a ride on his friend Daisy's sandwich. As the sandwich is broken apart, dissolved by stomach acid, and absorbed by Daisy's blood vessels, Max points out all the organs and chemicals that help her food digest. As he enters the final stages of digestion in the large intestine, Max educates the reader about the types of bacteria that break down food and release gas (although thankfully he is able to teleport out of the large intestine and make a "clean getaway" before being ejected the traditional way). The book ends with a brief conversation between Max and Daisy about the types of proteins, fats, and other nutrients the human body needs to stay healthy. It is an informative science lesson with good art and diagrams, but some young readers might find Max's "direct" approach to teaching kids about body functions smirk-worthy. Reviewer: Michael Jung
