The Magic of Reality: How We Know What’s Really True by Richard Dawkins is a graphic science book aimed at children and young adults. It describes lots of different natural phenomena, and explains the myths, folklore or legends that have been used to explain those phenomena and then how science explains them.
It is beautifully illustrated by Dave McKean. The text is interwoven with the pictures which creates a very engaging and colourful read.
