In The Press

"The Summer Camp Science Mysteries, a new line of educational graphic novels, features a multicultural group of summer campers who use science to explain various menacing phenomena. This first volume covers the case of a purported zombie that dwells in the fog-laden area surrounding the camp. Sure enough, it's just a matter of thinking straight, keeping a calm head, and applying knowledge of various subjects—matter, condensation, the periodic table of elements, code-breaking—before the real, harmless cause of the fog is uncovered. It is doubtful that even less attentive readers would miss that this is a science primer thinly disguised with a narrative. However, the frequent informational asides and suggested experiments (both in the story and in the addenda) should prove fun and fascinating for the curious. The art skillfully suggests enthusiasm through animated facial expressions, and its cartoon aesthetic imbues the story with a light touch." --Booklist
