For those who enjoyed the first book, Atomic Adventure will not disappoint. The artwork is just as dazzling, created with a similar, brighter palette and again adopting shapes and flourishes that evoke 1960s space-age designs. The science is just as fascinating too, and it s presented even more thoughtfully on the page, with a bit more airiness that helps guide the eye from one discovery to the next.  Whether you re a cat connoisseur, a dog devotee, a hamster partisan, or an iguana booster, you re apt to agree that the affable, amusing, and yes wonderfully nerdy Professor Astro Cat makes a fine companion for the budding scientist.

Ben Newman’s illustrations are unique, bright and colourful with a strong retro design which is unusual and eye catching, it’s instantly appealing.  Professor Astro Cat takes the children through each topic with a wonderful sense of fun and characterisation and he’s sure to become a much loved and recognised character as more of these books are created.

While the topics may seem at times overly complicated, Walliman makes the information easily accessible. This, in fact, would be a good physics primer for both children and adults. Walliman’s narrative pairs well with Newman’s illustrations which are reminiscent of Richard Scarry’s Busy Town.  it s an invaluable resource, as it gives an thorough overview of a subject that many find abstract and confusing. A great addition to any elementary or public library.

It poses and answers questions such as where does electricity come from? How do we see colours? How does a boat float? Why is the sky blue? And many many others. As in the previous title, this author cat addresses the reader in the first person – so that I am talking to you. This is a great way to pull the reader into the book:
“If I jump in the air or throw a ball really high, I know that the ball and I will always return back to the ground. This is because of gravity, which is an invisible force that pulls us down to the ground.”
Not only does the text pull in the reader, but it’s interactive too – suggesting experiments for the reader to partake in, (and not with a whole host of difficult ingredients, but simply and easily, such as measuring time with a stopwatch, and spraying a hose on a sunny day to make rainbows).
One of my favourite pages is ‘The Man Behind the Cheese’. Not only does it explain the origin of the idea of atoms – but explains to the child that “It just goes to show that you can work out rather a lot just by thinking about things hard enough.” A lovely end to the tale of Democritus.
