Damien Hirst "An engrossing read" New Scientist "...the look is punchy, immediate and effective. The content is equally gripping." The Guardian "This blending of science and art is pure genius.

It's a small sized book - about half the size of a paperback. Each page contains a simple description of a physics concept, with a corresponding cartoon on the opposite page.
If you are looking for detailed, in depth explanations, then this isn't the book for you. But if what you want is something straightforward which deals with all those "why" questions, then this is perfect.

Reviewed by Luke Sherriff-Meyer (aged 13)
This is a simple framework - a small size (half a normal paperback) with a physics concept on one page (simply explained) and a drawing/cartoon on the other helping to explain it.
I bought this and other presents to engender not only a continued interest in books but science and mathematics books. As an Arts graduate who has always had an interest in books, arts, science and the rest, I know how important it is to fan the flame early and keep it glowing. Science is a way of thinking, a way of looking at the world and this "fun-sized" book is ideal for beginning the process; small enough to put in a pocket but large enough to fill the mind. This is a great little series I hope my grandson will grow into; it certainly will not be for the want of Socratean fanning.
