Booklist - Julia Smith

"Super scientist Max Axiom is back, but now he has the help of Lizzy and Nick Axiom. After responding to a call about a seagull tangled in fishing line, the team heads out to free the bird and educate readers on the problem of ocean plastics, from littering and single-use plastics to ocean garbage patches and microplastics. Channeling Captain Planet, this engaging graphic presentation stars three Black science heroes and delves into its subject with verve. While Nick leads a beach cleanup, Max and Lizzy visit a scientist on a research ship to learn more about plastics and how people can help keep them out of the water. Question-driven dialogue results in conversational explanations that make this environmental topic extremely accessible. Part of the Max Axiom and the Society of Super Scientists series (4 titles)." - Booklist
