XKCD author will explain things with stick figures in science textbooks

A new class of high school students are about to see lots of snarky stick figures this coming fall
XKCD author Randall Munroe is going to be in some science textbooks.
Munroe, author of the popular webcomic, published a book last November called Thing Explainer: Complicated Stuff in Simple Words, which explains the laws of science using only the English language’s 1,000 most common words. Brains became “thinking bags,” and the Saturn V rocket became the “U.S. Space Team Up Goer,” with diagrams and his trademark stick figures all around.
