Description



About the Book



Dive into coral reefs with Maris Wicks (Human Body Theater) in this volume of Science Comics, an action-packed nonfiction graphic novel series for middle grade readers!



Book Synopsis



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 Coral Reefs, we learn all about these tiny, adorable sea animals! This absorbing look at ocean science covers the biology of coral reefs as well as their ecological importance. Nonfiction comics genius Maris Wicks brings to bear her signature combination of hardcore cuteness and in-depth science.



Review Quotes



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: Coral Reefs:

Author and illustrator Wicks's experience shines through with accurate facts and appealing, colorful drawings.
--School Library Journal
