With Izzy as their guide, readers explore the world and its mysteries without the confines of time or distance. Readers will journey to historical places, eras, and cultures such as the sinking of the Titanic and the building of the Great Wall of China. As with past titles from Capstone Press, Graphic Expeditions features artwork from illustrators, inkers, and colorists whose credits include DC Comics and Marvel.
“Graphic Expeditions combines exciting adventure stories with solid content correlated to curriculum standards, all in a high-demand graphic novel format,” said Matt Keller, President of Capstone Publishers Nonfiction. “The series is engaging and informative, and a great social studies counterpart to our wildly popular and award-winning Graphic Science series. Max Axiom fans will love Izzy.”
Dr. Isabel Soto joins the publisher’s Graphic Library line, which includes the popular Graphic Science series, a recipient of the 2008 Teachers’ Choice Award from Learning magazine and the 2007 Distinguished Achievement Award from the Association of Educational Publishers. Reviewers lauded the series and super scientist main character Max Axiom, saying “Max is the embodiment of authorial credibility, and the graphic format is used cleverly, if subtly, to make scientific concepts and observations perfectly clear” (School Library Journal) and “here’s a case in which a curriculum-related series puts the graphic-novel format to good use” (Booklist).
Graphic Expeditions includes standard nonfiction book features, such as a table of contents, glossary, index, sidebars, diagrams, primary sources, timelines, bibliography and a further information section. Order online at www.capstonepress.com or by calling 800-747-4992.
