The Incredible Plate Tectonics Comic: The Adventures of Geo, Vol. 1 is a classic comic about Geo and his robot dog, Rocky, with parallels to everyday life. While learning about plate tectonics for a test, his imagination experiences an earthquake as he skateboards past a jackhammer, and a tsunami for the truck splashing water. The book is essentially split into two halves: first the comic and second the textbook-style resource with all the terms explained in detail. The graphic novel concludes with further activities including "Create your own tsunami" and a "Volcano crisis simulator".

Who is this book best for?
