Basher Science: Earth Science Library, created and illustrated by Simon Basher
It's an Earth Science party as more than 175 of Basher's iconic characters get together to explain the basics of Earth Science. Things get rolling with Planet Earth, as readers meet all the globe-building characters like River, Coast, and Mountain Range, as well as the insiders like Core, Plates, and Hot Spot--where things get steamy! The fun continues in Rocks and Minerals, where readers get an introduction to Clay, Limestone, and Sandstone, and proceed through to all other minerals and gems  including the Quartz and Garnet, Diamond and Emerald. From there, readers explore 'making waves' in Oceans, as they meet all the forces which rule the Big Blue from the water world fundamentals like Ocean and Seas, right up through ocean explorers like Diving and Fishing. Throughout it all, Basher's hip, kicky style, personalizes the information and makes the fundamental ideas easy to remember. With glossaries in each book, rock-solid scientific information, and bonus fold out posters for all three books, this is an unbeatable--and entertaining--introduction to the basics of Earth Science.

It was very interesting, and colorful, and it taught me things I never even knew! The only issue was some of the things were really basic. Overall it was great though!
