why glass eyes aren't really made of glass?
what would make the worst stink bomb ever?
how to make your own toothpaste?

If you think you can stomach the `sick' side of Science, then read on as chaotic chemistry is put to the test.
Find out about some extraordinary experiments that went horribly wrong, discover the secrets of some very strange scientists and try your hand at some chaotic chemistry in the comfort of your own kitchen.

With fantastic fact files and quirky quizzes, teacher tests and crazy cartoons, `Chemical Chaos', is bubbling over with info!'

158 pages, written in a variety of fonts in the usual Nick Arnold entertaining style.
Black and white illustrations/cartoons throughout, as well as `Bet you never knew' fact-boxes, e.g.:-

`Oxygen can't burn on its own, but when mixed with other gases it can burn horribly well. In 1996 a hospital patient removed an oxygen mask under the sheets to smoke a cigarette. His bed filled with oxygen and exploded! And that wasn't the nastiest gas disaster!'

Science has never been so horrible!

Another success for the Horrible Science Series. CLEARLY WRITTEN AND GRABS THE INTEREST OF THE READER FROM THE OFF.

This is a very good science book that is good for pupils that arelearning about chemicals and chemistry altogether. It is great for its price. Nick Arnold makes Science come alive and Tony De Saulles makes it a lot more fun with all the pictures and illustrations
