Bought this as a present for a 9 year old.
He couldn't put it down and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Only complaint was that he wanted the book to be longer with even more slimy aliens. So 4 stars.
Great mix of real facts, fun stuff and cartoon strips with the slimy aliens.

A Kid's Review on 19 Jan. 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is about the space we don't know!!!!

It is a great book with lots of fascinating facts that some astronomers
would not know. It is fabulous and if you want to be an scientist this is
the book for you. Even better, they leave the horrible bits in, so its not for the squeamish.

My favourite part was the alien stories with Oddblob, Splurb and many more characters. I think the advertising is very very good, although Honest Bob's ideas will never work.

The only bit I didn't like was when I had to finish it.
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it - unless you dont like gory stories!

'Space, Stars and Slimy Aliens' is off on another planet!

Will you be spaced-out to discover:

* which astronomers killed people?
* why space makes the guts explode?
* what the moon smells like?

If you think you can stomach the 'sick' side of Science, then read on as we blast into outer space. Zoom around the planets with 'Oddblob' the alien, find out which galaxies eat each other and see if you've got what it takes to be a staggering stargazer.

With fantastic fact files, quirky quizzes and crazy cartoons, Space, Stars and Slimy Aliens (Horrible Science) is out of this world!'

A colourful paperback cover opens to 143 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.:

'The Van Allen belts, named after US scientist James Van Allen, who found them in 1958, are between 1000 and 25000 km from Earth. The Sun's radiation gets trapped by the Earth's magnetic fields in the belts. But if a spacecraft broke down there, the astronauts would be revoltingly roasted by the radiation.'
