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
Awesome atoms
Crazy chemical chaos
Mighty microbes
Bloodthirsty bugs
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!'

I found this pack to be very welcome in my year 5 classroom as a Primary teacher.
Not only does Arnlod provide a superb portrayl of the facts, but they are met and appreciated far more by the children, through the thoroughly entertaining illustrations of Tony De Saulles.
My class find his illustrations consistently entertaining and thus enable them to engage further with the text of the book and with the subject as a whole.
I would recommend this book to anyone seeking to make Science fun and engaging for their little tykes or slighlty-older ones!

I always liked the Horrible series, even the books in monochrome were interesting but this just makes it 10x better by being in color. Fascinating.
No problems with delivery or quality. I was going to give this as a present but I just had to keep it ;P

Ok the book itself is in good condition however there is an inscription on the front page. NO mention of this in the item description. Im on a budget and cannot now give this as a Christmas present to my daughter.
