Science Comics: Dogs From Predator to Protector by Andy Hirsch

33163386Science Comics: Dogs From Predator to Protector by Andy Hirsch is an interesting book full of scientific information about dogs with great illustrations. This book is a fun way to describe the process of evolution using dogs. The graphics are fun as well as informative.

This book is about a dog named Rudy, who is a pet dog who visits the local dog park. Once at the dog park, he tries to play with his yellow ball. This ends up taking the reader through a history of canis lupus to canis familiaris. The allows the reader to meet several different breeds of dogs and learn how they came to be using genetics, evolution and adaptations. There is a lot of scientific detail and scientific vocabulary that is explained in the story as well as in the extensive glossary at the end of the book.

I received this ARC from First Second Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
