There is something for all tastes, but they do lean towards the silly, goofy and downright silly. Chan's art perfectly illustrates the fun of each story.

Bauer combines science and spiritually. Both story and art create a beautiful way of showing the science of art and the art of science with poetic text and art. The illustrations are bold, rich, deep, abstract and a hit to the gut. The colors blend, melt, splatter and roll off the page. They are dark, with the right amount of light when and where needed. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

The earth is built from the “ground up” in haikus. Each one is artistic but factual. Almost every aspect of Earth from core to the surface is covered. The slightly abstract, but also realistic illustrations, fit the theme perfectly. There are little codes at the bottom of the page that corresponded with a fact page at the end. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
