Praise For…


Praise for the Science Comics series:

"This serieswritten by a handful of authorsseems 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: Robots and Drones:

"The sequential artwhich features a diverse cast of young STEM enthusiasts, including one wearing a hijabinfuses the discourse with life"School Library Journal

"A lighthearted, enjoyable introduction to a fascinating subject."Kirkus

This book is so fantastically unique and fills a niche for young readers that dearly needed to be filled. This book is about a young tiger who, with the help of her imaginary friend, fights off her nightmares that try to scare her at night. This book is empowering for those kids going through nightmares and wondering what to do.... Empowering, and also utterly delightful! Lovely illustrations and phenomenal storytelling, this book is one of my go-tos. Part graphic novel, part picture book, I absolutely adore Tiger Vs. Nightmare!!
