Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

“Is the Earth really getting hotter, and is that so bad?” “Why do we walk on two legs (instead of four)?” Conservation, evolution, technology, animal life, space travel, physics, and much more are discussed in this lively science book. The writer worked at the London Science Museum, and the chatty questions and answers read like an informal guided tour for kids, with text that is compelling, never intimidating, and sometimes deliberately outrageous. Starting with the book’s title, the open talk about yucky bodily functions will grab even reluctant readers (“Do rabbits fart? Why?” “What are scabs for, and is it OK to pick them?”). Children will have fun browsing the spacious pages and sharing what they read with adults, who can join in the explanations about complex stuff, including time travel and Einstein’s theory of relativity. Grades 3-6. --Hazel Rochman --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

“Students will find this a fun book to browse independently or share with friends. An excellent choice for reluctant readers in search of entertaining, informative nonfiction.” —School Library Journal

“Parents who slugged through science back in the day might want to take a peek, and science teachers confronting the lost, the confused, or the disengaged should welcome this as a lively back-up plan.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“This will be devoured by even the most reluctant readers or scientists.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Reluctant readers will find both format and subject appealing. Public libraries and media centers should acquire multiple copies, if possible, to meet certain demand.” —VOYA

“Children will have fun browsing the spacious pages and sharing what they read with adults, who can join in the explanations about complex stuff, including time travel and Einstein’s theory of relativity.” —Booklist

4.0 out of 5 stars Badly creased cover.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 3, 2020
The book’s content is probably great, but the cover was clearly bent up before packaging. I had to give a gift that looked like it came from a charity shop. Not great.
