Film Art: An Introduction
David Bordwell, Kristin Thompson
Leo Geo and His Miraculous Journey Through the Center of the Earth - Jon Chad "Luck? Magic? No, thanks! All I need is good, sound science!"

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway.

The art direction of the book is nice and clean, yet detailed. The way you have to hold the book differently at certain parts is fun, although at first very awkward.

Story is basic, but has some cool science facts throughout the book. I like how the main character relies on and utilizes science rather than magic or other things of the like.

Some of my nit-picks:
I realize this book was probably made for a younger audience, but some of the science in the book is a little off. Like the diamond drill. A diamond is very hard (mohs 10), but diamond is also very brittle and shatters fairly easy. Kind of like glass.

Also, many of the monsters living in the layer's of Earth had many eyeballs. Most of them would be living in complete darkness and through evolution would have no need for eyeballs, and would rather develop more useful abilities.

I know, I'm nit-picking, but I just had to say it.
