What would you do with a rainbow? Is the moon really made of cheese? Alongside these flippant, joky poems, are more thoughtful approaches to science: the fact that our planet is 'just right' - the only planet in our solar system that supports life. There's a rap to consider what our skin is wrapped around and an ode to Edison. Biology, physics, chemistry - all the sciences get a look in within the pages of this children's anthology, compiled by James Carter.

Nigel Baines' lively illustrations accompany the work of poets that include Gareth Owen, Wendy Cope, Gerard Benson, Jan Dean, Matthew Sweeney and Wes Magee, as well as a huge number of other popular British and Irish poets writing today. They are, indeed, "sizzling science poems".
