Synopsis

Science Comics: Volcanoes by Jon Chad

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 a fourth grader doing a natural science unit at school or a thirty year old with a secret passion for airplanes, these books are for you! This volume: in Volcanoes, we explore these exciting and explosive vents in the earth's surface. Along the way, readers will learn about lava, tectonic plates, islands and other landmasses generated by volcanoes, famous volcanoes, and famous eruptions. Jon Chad's detailed and quirky storytelling style, as found in the Leo Geo series of books, is perfectly suited to bring volcanoes to life.

Reviews

Like having a Time Life Science Library in comic books. Which is awesome! Popular Science, praise for the Science Comics Series

Chad s well-drawn and clearly labeled diagrams in rich, saturated colors concisely explain key concepts, and vocabulary words are defined both in the text and a glossary. While the stylized cartoon figures and adventure narrative are an entertaining framework, the science fittingly occupies the center stage. Booklist
