Format: Paperback
"The Magic School Bus" series is a gift for parents and techers who want to interest younger readers in science without pain.
The bright colourful illustrations catch the imaginations of younger readers and complex concepts are brought across simply but accurately. Readers identify with Arnold and the other children. They enthusiastically take part in the discussion as if they were right inside the covers of the book.
(My son is sure he can out-reason Dorothy-Ann, and this stimulates him to work out what happens next.)
The Magic School Bus Gets Eaten is no exception. Concepts of food chains are brought across simply but clearly and readers are led to make deductions based on previous information.
Excellent stuff! My son wants the next issue now!

Purchased this for my 7yr old son and he loves reading it. He's always coming up to me and sharing what he learned after reading a book from this series and the fact that he's enjoying reading so much while learning education facts at the same time makes me happy!

I think this book is so totally cool. I like it because it is has to do with the ocean and it shows you that one thing depends on another. If you look closely and read it well, you will be amazed at how it brings fiction and non-fiction in one book.

This book is for everybody that likes nature and the ocean!

The comic book format offers a lot of information -- very good. The focus is on the same food chain as in the book "Who Eats What?" -- good to have both.
