FYI, even if the library close to you does not have much options, not a problem. Just look at their catalog for the entire library collection (all libraries in the system) and then ask the librarian if they will get the book you want for you. Every day 100's of books go from and to the library close to you, upon request, most likely.
Please do not take this as an insult; because it is a great book. I would ask for The Cartoon Guide to Chemistry. And while you are at it, get the Cartoon Guide to Physics.
They are excellent books. I think they should both be introductry books for both material.http://www.larrygonick.com/html/pub/pub.html
The statistics one is excellent as well, not that you need it. They really are wonderful books, great at explaining concepts while not getting to down and dirty. Some of the favorite books in my collection.
