Critic Reviews

“"Through a bubbly plot and charming graphic-novel illustrations, author Mosco and illustrator Chad (with colorist Healy) create a world in which learning really is fun and even the faraway Pluto comes within reach...An anything-but-boring introduction to the beautiful mysteries of the universe."-- Kirkus "VERDICT A story line infused with humor and drama adds particular animation to this entry in the "Science Comics" series; budding astro-tourists in middle elementary grades will happily sign up for repeat journeys.- School Library Journal, starred review.”

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
