JJ’s Science Adventure: Magnets is the first installment in ‘Aurelia’s Comics for Education’ from Harvest Edutainment (2013; 80 pages; RRP S$18.90/US$17.90). The story is a full-coloured action-packed yarn about two very active children (Joyce, sharp-witted, intelligent and conscientious, brave and resourceful; and her brother Jonathon, sporadically a brilliant and creative genius, but with occasional stunning moments of unclear or absent thinking).

They go on a quest through a mysterious portal

The colourful illustrations for this educational comic book were very impressive. A story about two kids and their extraordinary adventures, it also teaches kids some fundamental scientific facts along the way. To be honest, some of these facts are probably an eye-opener for some adults. Great for kids!

I love the grandfather! While reading the book I was reminded of what I was taught about magnet during my school days and at the same time was very curious about the outcome of the grandfather and this made me read on until I finish the book. Now I am waiting for the second book to be published.

I like this book as it is very interesting and provides the readers knowledge on different scenarios. I really like the part of the book about the alternating grids (red & blue) on the wall. This allows the readers to learn more about the uses of magnets (temporary magnets, normal magnets & electromagnets) while looking at the characters solve each puzzle, which is unlike most books while just tell you the formula. Overall, a very well-made piece of work. I recommend this book to everyone and an ...more

A very educational, imaginative and creative book for kids. It also create analyzing and thinking skills too. Story is interesting and it makes readers want to read more. It makes it easier for kids to understand the concept of magnets. Pictures are colourful and attractive. Got this book for my nephew and he loves it.

The book Magnets follows the exciting adventure of twins Joyce and Jonathan as they venture into the unknown World of Magnets with their faithful robot companion, Robo.

The book is bound to capture the attention (and imaginations) of students. It is well-written with vibrant cartoons all throughout.

I love adventure stories involving solving puzzles. This book is educational; it teaches me Science at the same time. I have always thought all metals are magnets until I learnt about ferromagnetic materials from your book. You can try to include more activities and a sneak peek on the next adventure. - By Celine, aged 10.

This comic makes it interesting for younger kids to understand and learn about science. The pictures are colourful and attractive to adults nonetheless the kids. If your kid is not into science, this would be what you would be introducing.

I am primary school teacher. I have ordered the books for my pupils.
They like it very much and they could understand the concept of magnets better.
Nice book.

Recommends it for: primary school students and their parents and teachers. Maybe even to an imaginative movie producer.
Shelves: science, fiction
It has been a long time since I read a comic book, but curiosity prompted me to pick this one. It was certainly interesting and there were some parts that were really funny. As far as science concepts go, the book certainly has covered a good deal on the topic of magnets for students at a primary level and I dare say maybe a little more than what is required at that level.

There are some parts though that I wish were more coherent. For instance, after Jonathon and Joyce ran away from Mr Sinister

Recommends it for: Parents, educators and all students who like science to be taught in a light hearted way
I am not a fan of manga, comics or physics so when Aurelia Tan first sent me JJ’s Science Adventure: Magnets, I was hesitant to read it. Somehow, last night, I was bored with my usual reading materials, so I decided to peep into the book. It was surprisingly easy to read. In fact, I was drawn to the story right from the beginning. Although the artwork and colours used are not as intense as those of the Marvel characters that I am used to, the illustrator Nicholas Liem and colour artist Steven Li ...more

There are three reasons why this comic series work:

Strong, relatable characters (my favourite being Joyce)
Entertainment + education (these two factors marry each other perfectly)
Great storytelling + pretty artwork
