Review: Max Axiom, Super Scientist

August 5th, 2010

A few months ago, Snow and I discovered that we were each planning to review different titles in the Max Axiom Series.  After some back and forth, we realized that we should probably team up and review the series together.  Especially, since we’d both be bringing different perspectives to the review.  Snow’s background is in public libraries and my background is in school libraries.  While a library is a library, our mission does slightly differ and therefore it affects how we see books.

Max axiom is a scientist who acquired some interesting super powers from a freak accident.  He now uses those powers to help explain scientific ideas to a young audience.  By shrinking down to size Max gives readers a view of science like students may have never seen before.
