About the Author:

Liam O'Donnell was born in Northern Ireland and grew up in Canada.  He's lived in Toronto, Canada and is the author of several graphic novels, including the Max Finder Mystery series of you-solve-it comics.  He's never met a pirate and not sure if he ever wants to.  When he's not writing stories, he loves playing video games and going camping, but not at the same time.

Review:

Winner of the 2008 Teachers Choice Award for Childrens Books --Learning Magazine, September 2007

Did you know that planting one tree produces enough oxygen to support four people a year? This is just one of the facts the reader will learn. I think back to when I was in school and remember having good teachers, access to encyclopedias, libraries, and even doing my homework after being gently prodded by my parents. However, I certainly never had books like this one that takes a science concept such as photosynthesis, adding a super hero who can shrink to the size of an atom, mixes in excellent graphics and presents a scientific concept in a reader friendly way. This book is written in graphic format that is a favorite of mine! It makes it perfect for students who are reluctant readers and never seem to finish a book on their own. Young adults who want to read anything they can get their hands on will also enjoy the graphics and fast paced text. The full-color graphics make an enormous impact on the story. Red boxes with pertinent vocabulary words and meanings are included throughout the book. Vocabulary has been well selected and this book is an excellent resource that could be used for writing a summary, a book report, or a source for research. At the end of the book, the author includes several pages with more facts, a Glossary, Read More Section, Internet-sites and an Index. This book should be in all science classrooms, school libraries, and added to reference books at home. I do highly recommend this book. --Childrens Literature Comprehensive Database, January 2007

Solid science and decent graphic-novel style illustrations are the basis for the series.  In Forces and Motion, to represent motion, some of the illustrations are blurred which may be off-putting to some.  The More About section of each book sums up the topic.  Inset boxes address vocabulary, interesting facts, and famous people.  Web sites are accessed through FactHound.  The action and story line are easy-to-follow, even for those not raised on graphic novels.  These should be a welcome addition to a collection and will be enjoyed by students who like graphic formats, science, and ESOL and Special Education populations.  Bibliography. Glossary.  Index.  Recommended. --Library Media Connection; Vol. 26, No. 2; Page 88, October 2007
