About the Graphic Science Series:
What an incredibly unique way to teach science! Start with an ultra cool superhero scientist who can shrink to the size of an atom, or slip into a lab coat to travel through time, or even slip on a pair of sunglasses to obtain x-ray vision. Add engrossing graphics and short reader-friendly sentences, and there you have it, the Max Axiom series of graphic novels.
Max Axiom is your child's tour guide as he demonstrates and explains science in a thoroughly engaging and memorable way. These books are especially useful for children who find reading to be a drag or science a bore. Max Axiom's action-packed graphic narrative format makes science not only accessible but also attractive.
Scientific Terminology Explained
Each title is rich with detailed accurate information, scientific terminology is clearly defined and presented in a reader-friendly way. Some books also include well-done detailed diagrams to clarify the more difficult topics. Each vivid full-color book focuses on a single theme presenting it in an interesting and understandable way. All 32-page books include several pages with more facts, a glossary with kid-friendly definitions, a bibliography, and links to websites.
An Excellent Resource
Solid science and captivating graphic-novel illustrations make these books an excellent resource for your family's library. One caveat, these are published by a secular company, so occasional references to evolution may appear.

My boys love these books. They’re a great resource for science.
I love the Max Axiom series. We incorporate them into our science curriculum and my children often read them just for fun.
I purchased the Natural Disasters set for my 8 and 4 year old boys. They both love the books and while my 8 year old reads them on his own, my 4 year old likes me to read them to him. The books all give basic information about each of the disasters covered, so if you are looking for something very in depth, you might consider other books. But for an introduction to earthquakes, hurricanes, and volcanoes this is a great start. Each book contains information, history, types of jobs for scientists in that field, definitions, websites and book lists. The quality of the books are great as well, with thick pages that can stand up to a lot of use.
