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
Praise for Science Comics: Dinosaurs:
Included in School Library Journal's "Best of 2016" list.
"The artwork and text are attractive and interesting, and readers will learn how dinosaur bones became fossils and how their remains were eventually discovered. Great entry-level texts that will spark readers’ interest in these topics." —School Library Journal
