Library Media ConnectionThese compact books are more packed with content than their cartoonish covers imply. Each book is illustrated with brightly colored graphics. The content is directed toward an older, hipper, pre-adolescent reader. Despite their detail-rich content, the writing tone is casual and accessible. These handy books serve as reference books on their respective topics; a teacher would appreciate a set in the ready-reference section of their classroom. They are good books to hand to a student who needs a fresh approach to the topic for clarification.
