From the Back Cover
A comprehensive and Fun NEW illustrated guide to biology
Did you faint when your middle school science teacher asked you to dissect a frog? Do you think DNA stands for “Don’t kNow the Answer”? Do you think the carbon cycle is a hip new way to roll around town? If you said yes to any of these questions—or even if you didn’t—then you need The Cartoon Guide to Biology.
The latest from New York Times bestselling author Larry Gonick—writing with biologist Dave Wessner—is an informative and hilarious handbook to the science of life. From the inner workings of the cell to the magic of gene expression, the Krebs and Calvin cycles, sexual and asexual reproduction, evolution, and ecosystems, The Cartoon Guide to Biology uses simple, clear, humorous illustrations to make biology’s most complex concepts entertaining and easy to grasp. Whether you’re peering into a petri dish for the first time, brushing up after decades of devolution, or just simply curious about how life works, this book has you covered.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

I don't think this book should be read on its own, instead it may well serve to be most useful as support material to other textbooks for the young learner.
The diagrams are good and compelling and the whole product is very nicely composed as a learning package.
Some of the images of chemical bonding etc make absolutely no sense to the uninitiated (well not to my daughter anyway) and have none or very unclear explanations about why they are there at all. That said, I think this book will become increasingly valuable to my daughter as she gets older and studies biology at a higher level.
The 2-page format and font causes too much strain to read.
