I apologise for this, it might be my age, but my son was thoroughly enthralled by it, just as he is with this book on Rocks and Minerals. We sit and read this together, picking out our favourites, obsidian, gold, slate etc. It tells you what you need and want to know.
Some books talk to you and this one does; in the first person.
Well made and tactile, with crazy illustrations.
It appeals to the reader that it is aimed at, enough said.
The book only measures 13cm x 13cm x 8mm thick. Each mineral has a double page spread with a full page cartoon picture on one side. There is a minimal amount of jokey text.
This books offers poor value and minimal educational content.
