Frequently bought together
Praise for the Science Comics series:
"This series―written by a handful of authors―seems determined to offer a useful introduction to anything a curious grade-school student might wonder about. The insight behind these books is a powerful one. So much information about the world around us is actually better conveyed visually, through charts, illustrations, and sequential panels, than purely using words." ―New York Times
"Like having a Time Life Science Library in comic books. Which is awesome!" ―Popular Science
Praise for Science Comics: Flying Machines:
"Inspirational reading for budding middle grade inventors and engineers―valuable for its broad picture of aviation’s early history and for providing specifics about the technical problems the Wright brothers faced and solved." ―School Library Journal
"An accessible and engaging introduction to the Wright brothers and how they ushered in the age of flight." ―Kirkus
