This book was my son's first horrible science book which has given him an insatiable appetite for more horrible science books, of which he is now an avid collector. He finds these books, easy to comprehend, the terminology is enthralling and makes a satisfying read. Having been a reluctant reader of fiction and non fiction books, the 'horrible' book series have hit the right button.
