1. Hosler, Jay. Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth, illus. by Kevin Cannon & Zander Cannon. G
Grades 10 & up
"...Set up as an explanation of life on Earth for an alien race, it is arranged by chapters, with an introduction, an epilogue, a suggested reading list, and a glossary. The black and white illustrations and lettering are easy to follow, but the Cannons seem to have only one set of characters. The same "aliens" that appeared in " The Stuff of Life" are in "Evolution, even though this book is by a different author."

2. Ward, Chris. et al. Political Power: Presidents of the United States. illus by Azim Akberali, et al.
Grades 9 & up
"Four different artists present the lives of four United States presidents. The first three biographies give clear overviews of the careers of Obama, Reagan, and Clinton. The Obama story is one of the volume's highlights: the detailed painted illustrations are realistic and expressive, and the text is humorously irreverent....the variety of art and writing styles should keep readers engaged, and the authors do ot talk down to their audience, making references to people."
