Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Max Axiom is a super teacher in the tradition of Miss Frizzle and the Magic Schoolbus. To teach students about magnets, Max travels back in time to the 900 B.C. Greek region of Magnesia where the discovery of magnetism was first documented. He shrinks into an atom to demonstrate the spinning force of electrons and blasts deep into space to illustrate the Earth’s magnetic poles and the forces that cause the Aurora Borealis (northern lights) and the Aurora Australis (southern lights). He then returns safely back to his present-day lab for some fun science experiments that can be replicated at home or in the classroom. Written in an accurate and engaging graphic novel format with inserted panels defining key terms, this book would be an exciting asset to any home or classroom library. This book is complete with additional facts about magnetism, a glossary and index, and a fact-file of Max Axiom’s super capabilities and basic statistics. Suggested safe internet sites accompany the text. Reviewer: Louanne Jacobs
