The Lovereading4Kids comment

Doing exactly what it says on the tin, Nick Arnold’s book presents children with 88 different scientific challenges spread across brightly coloured, busy pages and grouped according to nine different themes, including air experiments, energy and sound experiments, body experiments and force experiments. Each page explains what is needed, and poses questions for children to answer after completing the experiment, testing their understanding. There are ‘what’s next’ challenges too encouraging readers to develop the experiments further. The intriguing half an experiment is a science surprise that will fascinate everyone, whatever their age! An appealing and effective hands-on information book.~ Andrea Reece

About the Author

Nick Arnold

Horrible Science author, Nick Arnold, has been writing books and stories since he was a lad. Even in those days his favourite subjects for stories were horrible goings-on, the more gruesome the better! So you see, he hasn't changed a bit!

Nick's first published books appeared when he was working at the University of North London on a project teaching children about nature. This led to a magazine article and then, one day, Nick had a brilliant idea. He said to himself:

"If I can write newspaper articles, then I can write books for other publishers too!"
