Synopsis

The Explosive World of Volcanoes With Max Axiom Super Scientist by Katherine Krohn

You've never had a science teacher like this! Max Axiom is a super-cool super-scientist. The Explosive World of Volcanoes with Max Axiom, Super Scientist is written in graphic novel format and follows the adventures of Max Axiom as he explains the science behind volcanoes! Volcanoes In another one of episodes packed with time and space travel, Max starts of on the slopes of a volcano in Costa Rica dressed in some high-tech volcanologist suit; then he flies to a research vessel somewhere on the Pacific to take a 'mini-sub' to the seabed to show us underwater volcanoes forming new islands. He travels back in time to see the eruptions and the after-effects in Washington in 1980, Martinique in 1902 and Pompeii in AD 79, so apart from some learning about the tectonic plates, volcanoes and the composition of the Earth, we also get a bit of history. This is a brilliant way to learn about core science topics in a fun and easily accessible way - a great way to introduce new information or reinforce learning.
