I really like Pamela Allen books although they are not often widely available in the UK (much more popular in Australia and New Zealand). The language she uses is a little different from the average picture book and the illustrations are wonderful. This book is a fun introduction to the scientific principle of displacement but it is fun read whether you take this on board or not! Her books definitely deserve to be more widely read here in the UK.

A useful book for KS1 pupils or SEN, showing the displacement of water. Be ready for the numerous full-nudity pics (rear only, thank goodness) of Mr Archimedes as he gets in and of the bath, as this can cause some hilarity from the pupils!
