'A stunning gruesome guide to everything!'
on 1 March 2007
Science like you have never seen it before!
'The Stunning Science of Everything' is just what it says it is - a stunning gruesome guide to everything! Get set for a whirlwind tour of science - from the tiniest thing you can think of, to the universe that's bigger than you can ever imagine......
Inside you'll find out:
Why you're breathing in dinosaur burps
What poos in your bed 20 times a day
What happens when you drop a rabbit through the centre of the earth
You'll also have the chance to take a gruesome guided tour through the human body, go on the 'Horrible Science' astronaut training course and get the very big picture with a stunning pull-out timeline of science, and it's all in glorious gory colour.'
Sure to be a favourite, the large format hardback (plus dust jacket) with its putrid-coloured cover opens to reveal 92 shiny, high quality pages, split over 12 chapters:
The stunning start
The brain-boggling Big Bang
Crazy chemical chaos
Awful animals and pesky plants
Bloody body bits
Dreadful dinosaurs (and other fearsome fossils)
The explosive earth
The scary solar system
The unbelievable universe
finishing with an epilogue, and the aforementioned timeline.
Packed full of facts, games, 'Brainy Boffin' and 'Bet you never Knew' boxes. Superb colour illustrations throughout, text is in a variety of fonts and written with the usual Nick Arnold entertaining style.
'Science has never been so horrible!'
