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

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 07, 2011 – Chad s inventive vertical artwork acts as a spoonful of sugar to the medicine of geology lessons. The featureless protagonist, an enthusiastic scientist named Leo, sets off on a journey to the center of the Earth through the book s tall pages, and readers are encouraged to turn the book vertically to follow his trek downward. Leo spouts real science facts, but also encounters fantastic creatures in the Earth s mantle at temperatures where nothing ought to be able to survive. Leo uses some big scientific words and even a few wicked-looking math equations, although he is careful to clarify most of what he says for younger audiences. Chad s layouts eliminate panel borders in an appealing experiment that is rarely (if ever) confusing, and the busy black and white marginalia has enough detail work for repeated readings. Chad s choice to leave Leo featureless lends the book a more game-like quality, although he is more of an established character than an avatar. Budding scientists should find the geology fascinating, and the magic dagger fighting with monsters gives it a good story to go along with the facts. Ages 7 up.
