"The visuals help readers better understand plate tectonics."
"Great drawings, great science, great story."
"I’ve seen first hand just how much kids eat up comics nowadays (which is awesome, by the way), but when they can tackle things other than literacy and social issues, I’m shocked and very impressed. Adorable. Love it."
