The Lovereading4Kids comment

From the same author as last year’s huge hit, Why Is Snot Green?, comes a brand new collection of answers to an awful lot of questions ranging from ‘what are clouds for?’ and ‘how loud can you burp?’ to ‘why is water wet?’ and ‘why can’t planes fly in space?’ Rest assured you’ll learn a lot as you read this book but also it just might answer a few questions that you thought you knew but didn’t. Will be a great deal of fun as well.


How Loud Can You Burp? (Science Museum) by Glenn Murphy

How loud can you burp? Could we use animal poo to make electricity? Why is water wet, and is anything wetter than water? What's the deadliest disease in the world? What are clouds for? What's the difference between a brain and a computer? This book helps us take a different look at the world (and universe) we live in.


An entertaining, accessible approach to science that's sure to appeal to science buffs and general browsers alike. -- School Library Journal The facts are often fascinating and the presentation lively. --Booklist
