Beautifully presented and informative. A must for any budding scientist - and remains accessible and informative for all ages. Lovely.

1.0 out of 5 stars Appears solely based on ignorance and fear, 28 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A mean spirited little missive that appears to discount any personal experience not directly confirmed by King's constant reference to 'the scriptures'. Thankfully science and the right of individuals to free thought progresses regardless. The fact that King even finds Alexander's use of the word 'om' troubling, due apparently to its link with other religions, underlines the narrow minded and fear based approach of this entire book. Avoid at all costs if you actually value evidence based and intelligent debate.

1.0 out of 5 stars Actually upsetting as it falls apart so easily!, 1 Sept. 2007
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This is a visually accurate (if quite small) ninky nonk, so first impressions were good. Then we got it out of the packaging.
We soon realised that due to exceptionally poor design the carriages fall apart continually when children play with them and for younger ones in particular this is upsetting and frustrating as it appears to 'break' continually - oh and forget about the ninky nonk racing about like it does on the telly - if it gets 3 centimetres without falling apart it is a wonder. A cynical piece of marketing - and upsetting for eager children.
