Product Description

About the Author

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!

High school chemistry teacher Adrian Dingle is the creator of an award-winning chemistry website (www.adriandinglechemistrypages.com). The site has been recommended by the BBC and the National Science Teachers Association.

I blame the quiz show "Pointless" for my purchase of this. I know very little science at all and my formal chemistry knowledge ceased when I was 13 - though I know a little from gardening and avoiding pesticides. I didn't even know what the periodic table was and the idea of elements like Vanadium seemed someone's idea of a joke - I thought Vanadis was a Nordic goddess. So I needed a straightforward, well set out, simple text which would tell me what was what and what did what. This book supplies it - and so much more. I really like the illustrations, it is well set out and the poster at the end is a bonus. Perhaps my having been a Children's Librarian helps with the recognition that many children's books provide an excellent foundation for more. I can't see it through a child's eyes but I don't think this is a children's book. It is for anyone who just wants to know!

This was purchased for my 10 year old grandson after he taught himself the Elements Song, so that he would know what he was singing about. I was impressed with the clarity of the illustrations and the text was easy to understand. I'll be buying some more books in the series soon.

Great book - brings the elements of chemistry to life ! Easy to understand for any age group and quirky characters help them stick in a child's memory.

This is a fun, colourful book which is funkily cartoony rather than childish.

There was sufficient information to help my son with his Year 7 project on the elements and I imagine it will be helpful later on in his school career, too.
