Synopsis

Dirtmeister's Nitty Gritty Planet Earth All About Rocks, Minerals, Fossils, Earthquakes, Volcanoes, & Even Dirt! by Steve Tomecek

Come and explore the world under your feet with the Dirtmeister and friends! Part graphic novel, part fun guidebook, this very cool, rocky journey introduces both eager and reluctant readers to the basic geologic processes that shape our Earth. Clear and concise explanations of the various geologic processes reveal the comprehensive science behind each fascinating topic. Fun facts and simple DIY experiments reinforce the concepts while short biographies of important scientists inspire future geo-scientists.

Reviews

Dirtmeister's Nitty Gritty Planet Earth is well organized, with a balanced mix of cartooning and seriousness. Stephen Tomecek and Fred Harper together succeed in making Earth science fun. - New York Journal of Books
