Editorial Reviews

Review

Winner of the 2008 Teachers' Choice Award for Children's Books --Learning Magazine, September 2007

Solid science and decent graphic-novel style illustrations are the basis for the series.  In Forces and Motion, to represent motion, some of the illustrations are blurred which may be off-putting to some.  The More About section of each book sums up the topic.  Inset boxes address vocabulary, interesting facts, and famous people.  Web sites are accessed through FactHound.  The action and story line are easy-to-follow, even for those not raised on graphic novels.  These should be a welcome addition to a collection and will be enjoyed by students who like graphic formats, science, and ESOL and Special Education populations.  Bibliography. Glossary.  Index.  Recommended. --Library Media Connection; Vol. 26, No. 2; Page 88, October 2007

Finalist of the 2007 Distinguished Achievement Award --Association of Educational Publishers, June 2007

One would think that Isabel Soto's text on global warming would be enough, but this text has some interesting differences. Max Axiom gives in-depth analysis of the greenhouse effect, aided by charts. Axiom's second chapter discusses thoroughly the problem of carbon dioxide in our planet. A third chapter covers the effects of global warming in greater detail. And finally, its last chapter illustrates the measures people are taking to prevent greater effects from global warming. Whereas Soto's adventure takes us into a historical account that constantly stresses on the need to be aware of GW's deleterious effects, Max Axiom's text takes a more science textbook approach, explaining concepts and cause-effect relationships with charts and scientific data. Using different approaches and presenting data in different manner, both texts serve to warn us about the future dangers of global warming. They effectively complement each other. This text also addresses the same grade levels that the Isabel Soto's text does.

The idea of these books is great, but they need to make the book longer with more of a plot so that children have time to get into the adventure and learn the information.

Format: Paperback
All this little book does is to rant and rant about how oil and cars are EVIL and how you shouldn't use oil based products or own a vehicle. If you want your kid to become one of those bicycle-riding hippies that hate cars because they don't work and can't buy one then this is the book for you.
