Praise For…

Praise for Science Comics: The Digestive System:

"Magic School Bus graduates ready for a busy, heavy informational load will find this just the ticket. ...A fun and challenging introduction."—Kirkus

"Serious middle school ­voyagers who go with the densely informational flow will wind up not intellectually constipated but, like E, ­ultimately, flushed with ­wonder." —School Library Journal, starred review

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
