Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michael Jung PhD
Super scientist Max Axiom delivers another fact-filled exploration of science in his latest graphic novel for kids. This time, Max examines the mysteries of matter—from 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 panels—and 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
