Product Description

Review

Booklist[T]he entries make lighthearted but unexpectedly meaty reading. Confirmed rock hounds will find this latest of Basher's forays into science a refreshing change of approach from more conventional treatments. School Library JournalThis unique book gives each rock and mineral personality and pizzazz through the use of a conversational, first-person text. . . . Readers will enjoy and learn from this fact-filled, accessible book. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Dan Green (author) edited THE PERIODIC TABLE and wrote ASTRONOMY, BIOLOGY and PHYSICS. He studied Geology at Cambridge University.

Artist and designer Simon Basher has fun playing in the world of contemporary character design. Inspired by a love of simple line work and a rich colour palette, his characters fill the gap between edgy Manga and the cuteness of Hello Kitty!

At last - books that help children (older children) to learn and not really realise they are doing it. These books are all written and illustrated in a way which appeals to children - but they contain the correct and relevant facts. My two boys pick these books up at will and pick out snippets of information from them. They are so popular that I've been asked to look out for when the next one comes out!

When I reviewed the first book in this series that I bought for my son (Planet Earth) I have to say that I had difficulty with the abstract way the book was written and gives its information.

I apologise for this, it might be my age, but my son was thoroughly enthralled by it, just as he is with this book on Rocks and Minerals. We sit and read this together, picking out our favourites, obsidian, gold, slate etc. It tells you what you need and want to know.

Some books talk to you and this one does; in the first person.

Well made and tactile, with crazy illustrations.

It appeals to the reader that it is aimed at, enough said.

When I glanced at the book I though it looked a bit noddy but my 8 year old grandson thought it good............he had been starting a stone/rock collection and had some info from school. I just thought this book was not very streatching even for an 8 year old.
