Synopsis

Science Comics: Coral Reefs by Maris Wicks

Every volume of Science Comics offers a complete introduction to a particular topic: dinosaurs, coral reefs, the solar system, volcanoes, bats, flying machines, and more. These gorgeously illustrated graphic novels offer wildly entertaining views of their subjects. Whether you're doing a natural science unit at school or a thirty year old with a secret passion for planes, these books are for you! In Coral Reefs, we learn all about these tiny, adorable sea animals! This absorbing look at ocean science covers the biology of coral reefs as well as their ecological importance. Nonfiction comics genius Maris Wicks brings to bear her signature combination of hard-core cuteness and in-depth science.
