The Solid Truth about States of Matter with Max Axiom, Super Scientistby Agnieszka Biskup, Cynthia Martin, Anne Timmons
In graphic novel format, follows the adventures of Max Axiom as he explains the science behind states of matter.
Children's Literature - Michael Jung PhDSuper scientist Max Axiom delivers another fact-filled exploration of science in his latest graphic novel for kids. This time, Max examines the mysteries of matterfrom the concepts of mass, volume, and weight; to the atoms and molecules that make up matter; to the different solids, liquids, and gasses matter can become when its molecules become more or less active. As with the other graphic novels in the "Max Axiom" series, the book packs a decent amount of information in its comic book-style panelsand even includes some science tidbits that some teachers may be unaware of, such as the existence of forms of matter like plasma (a unique super-heated form of gas that makes up lightning). Though the book is fairly short at twenty-nine pages, it actually deserves a few repeat readings to absorb all the facts Max presents. Overall, it's a fun book for kids who like unusual facts and a decent science lesson in and of itself. Reviewer: Michael Jung, PhD
