"An artful blend of general facts and myth-busting; ideal for collections seeking to bolster STEM collections and convince readers to give spiders a chance." —School Library Journal
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
