Most superheroes have an alter ego. Some, like Superman’s Clark Kent, work a day job. Or, like Star-Lord’s Peter Quill, they might fly around the galaxy when not saving it. But the superheroes on movie screens are played by talented men and women who work hard to look and sound exactly right to play both the hero and alter ego. This set takes readers behind the scenes of these actors’ lives, from their beginnings on screen to the preparation they went through to become our favorite heroes. Full-color images showcase incredible transformations, costumes, and more.

Accidental Scientific Discoveries that Changed the World

Reading Level: 3–4 Interest Level: 3–6

Sometimes when we hear about famous scientific breakthroughs, we assume that the brilliant scientists behind them knew exactly what they were doing. That isn’t always the case. This striking collection demonstrates that sometimes mistakes in the laboratory lead to innovations that change our lives. Pacemakers, penicillin, and microwaves are just some of the incredible developments that came about accidentally. The history and science behind each discovery and its impact on the world are explained. Helpful photographs add to the dynamic book design, and thought-provoking sidebars offer more information about essential topics.

Have you ever noticed something moving out of the corner of your eye, only to look and everything be still? Some images are made to trick your brain just like this. The movement happens because the brain can’t focus well on things in our peripheral vision. This set teases out the science of awesome optical illusions from how forced perspective works in art to our tendency to look for eyes in the world around us. What was once brain boggling is explained in accessible language with real-life examples and in-text invitations for readers to make their own illusions.

Beastly Books for the Brave

Reading Level: 2–3 Interest Level: 2–5

From claws and fangs to venom and stingers, some animal characteristics are the stuff of nightmares and horror movies! While they’re often used to attack and hunt for food, animals often use their sharp teeth, strong kicks, and other means to defend themselves. This series uses an imaginative design to draw in the bravest readers, and the main content explores many examples of animal attack and defenses, including the idea that many animals are both predator and prey. Dynamic, full-color images take readers as close to some of the most dangerous parts of nature as they will ever get!

Exposed! More Myths About American History

Complete Set of 12 books: $303.00/$227.40 ISBN: 978‑1‑5382‑4151‑6

Not everything people think they know about American history is true. In fact, some decidedly false notions are repeated and passed on again and again until people think they’re facts. For example, slavery was found in more areas of the United States than the South during the Civil War, and the Statue of Liberty wasn’t created to welcome immigrants. This must-have series, a continuation of our popular collection, highlights significant topics in the elementary social studies curriculum through the lens of shattering some long-believed myths. Readers will love passing on actual historical facts to family and friends.
