1.0 out of 5 stars do NOT buy the Kindle edition, 3 Oct 2011
I bought this for my Kindle as my son wanted some books that could be read to him from his Mum's new toy. The book itself appears to be an extremely well written, entertaining and educational science book for kids that would have completely captivated him if it were not for the fact that the kindle edition has all the questions missing from the text. As the answers are written in a conversational style this makes the whole thing somewhat pointless as you have to then try and work out from the first paragraph of the answer what the question might have been.
Looking at the preview views of the paper version these are in a different font but the other illustrations are copied accurately and its not really an excuse as this is not free.
By all means buy the actual book (and we almost certainly shall track it down and buy it now, though am sufficiently annoyed at Amazon to buy it from another retailer) but DO NOT buy the kindle version

4.0 out of 5 stars its a grower, 18 April 2011
This review is from: Build A Rocket Boys! (Audio CD)
Not as immediate or as symphonic as Seldom Seen Kid but I find myself listening again and again. beautiful layers of melody

1.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT a whistling kettle, 28 Sep 2009
We took the first one back in case it was a fault with the seal on the lid and the spout but the replacement one also has a really pathetic whistle - it just sounds like there's a strong breeze outside blowing around the guttering. This one is going back as well and we'll look for a different brand which actually makes a noise.
