My son loves science and he loves this book, he can hardly put it down and finished reading with comprehension in a quick time. I bought another of this authors books called, "The Stunning Science of Everything." I wish I could get the boxed sets.

My seven year old girl is not very typical of her age and sex. We are always on the hunt for interesting books as she prefers fact to fiction. There is something wonderful about the horrible series. She is a massive fan of horrible science and horrible histories.
This book is to be savored. It probably won't be read from cover to cover, in order. It *will* be read however. And some passages will be read and read and read aloud!
The book contains comic strips, jokes, drawings, text. She goes back to it like a good friend. Suitability? Boys and quirky girls age 6- 16. Would be amazing for a reluctant boy reader.
