These gorgeously illustrated graphic novels offer wildly entertaining views of their subjects. Whether you're a 4th 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 VOLCANOES, we explore these exciting and explosive vents in the Earth's surface. Along the way readers will learn about lava, tectonic plates, islands and other land masses generated by volcanoes, famous volcanoes, and famous eruptions. Jon Chad's detailed and quirky story-telling style, as found in the Leo Geo series of books, is perfectly suited to bring volcanoes to life.

This is a graphic novel full of great facts about all about volcanoes, but I found the storyline/narrator kind of distracting.

Good volcano info, but the fictional storyline interfered with my reading experience. A better, realistic storyline could have been chosen.
