Leo Geo and His Miraculous Journey Through the Center of the Earth

Jon Chad

Roaring Brook Press

An intrepid explorer climbs down, down, down the page as he voyages through the center of the earth in this unusually inventive comic adventure.
 
Intrepid explorer Leo Geo is heading off on a mission into the unknown. With science as his sidekick, he intends to tunnel his way to the center of the earth. Of course, things never turn out quite the way you expect when you're burrowing your way through the earth's layers. Before long, Leo is forced to leave his tunneling machine behind, and  he climbs, crawls, and falls to his destination while dodging giant centipedes, man-eating quadclops, and an evil army of subterranean malvisors bent on invading the surface. Kids will be drawn in by the unusual format of this inventive comic, following Leo as he climbs deeper  and deeper into a very long and skinny book—and they may just learn a few things about geology as they go.

REVIEWS

Praise for Leo Geo and His Miraculous Journey Through the Center of the Earth

“This blend of genre-busting text and richly detailed black-line cartoons, smarty-pants scientific rambling and bizarre adventure, will appeal to kids who wear their nerdiness as a badge of honor.”-BCCB

 

“…a rare book that sets out to make science fun and truly accomplishes it by embracing a gee-whiz wonderment with the natural (and fantastical) world.”-Booklist

 

 

“This heavily illustrated title is a fantastic adventure loaded with information for kids to absorb.”-School Library Journal, starred
