Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Gr 2–4—Max Axiom, super scientist and Laurence Fishburne lookalike, returns to explain more modern-tech wonders in this fresh set of graphic novel-style episodes. For instance, in Combustion Engine, he breaks down the history and components of the subject for a young relative with a report to write. And in Cell Phone, he squires a buddy from a dead zone in the Grand Canyon to the top of a cell-phone tower. The cartoon art is blurry and wooden, but students with writing assignments will get plenty of help from the lucid explanations, clearly labeled diagrams, and end matter, which includes additional facts and critical-thinking questions.
