More About the Author

Since 1996 writer Nick Arnold and illustrator Tony de Saulles have been amusing, informing and grossing-out their readers with their enormously popular and award-winning series of Horrible Science books. From Blood, Bones and Body Bits to Space, Stars and Slimy Aliens, these books cover every subject known to science. Nick Arnold has been writing stories since he was a boy and even then his favourite topics were horrible goings-on - the more gruesome the better. So you see he hasn't changed a bit. His first published work came about when he was working on a project teaching children about nature for the University of North London. This led on to magazine articles and one day Nick had the brilliant idea, that if he could write articles he could also write books! Since then Nick has lost count of the number of books he's written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff 1 May 2006
By young man VINE VOICE
A fantastic book.

My only warning is that you will hear the words "we could do this one" time after time after time!

It makes science really easy to understand and holds the interest well.

The cartoon style drawings are great and really appeal to the reader. This is great as the age range of this book is normally when pictures are starting to disappear from their everyday reading books and so many children really miss them.

If you have read the regular 'Horrible Science' series of books, you will be aware of the way in which NICK ARNOLD puts knowledge across, in a humorous way. This book is no exception.

Large paperback format - the colourful, humorous cover opens to 100 pages, split over 8 chapters:-

A visit to Rotten Road....and a warning!
Bloody body experiments
Baffling brain experiments
Wicked wildlife experiments
Crazy chemistry experiments
Foul physics experiments
Fearsome finale

with black and white illustrations/cartoons/'bet you never knew' boxes throughout.

'This Horrible Science book is bulging with 'rotten' experiments.
'Really rotten' experiments.
The sort of experiments that you should only try if you want to stagger a scientist or torture a teacher.
Experiments that offer awesome answers to strange scientific secrets such as:-

How can water walk?
What goes on in your stomach and why?
How big does your bladder get?
How can lizards walk up walls?
And what happens when you put a teacher in the deep-freeze for a very long time?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!!! 29 Nov 2003
Just for start this book is in a full-size edition.It haves a lot of experiments,with the topics:"Bloody Body Experiments","Baffling Brain Experiments","Wicked Wildlife Experiments","Crazy Chemistry Experiments" and "Foul Physics Experiments".Some of the experiments are:How to do a green slime,how to do a sick stomach,how to do a 3-d monster,how to do a fizzy drink from blowing up and how to do a flour volcano and a lot more really rotten experiments!Plus you know the 3 most stupid experiments from the history,who won the Nobel prize for create pong-free underpants and how it works,and meet a flying frog.
And for do the experiments you meet the school guys from the Rotten Road School.In another words:this book is really cool!!!!

By Sonia
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my nephew. I thought he would love it as he is into rotten experiments. The smelliest the better. But this book is more a reading book that an guide for experiments. He did not like it, read it or use it. I was disappointed. Luckily is was cheap to buy.
