Julia Eccleshare's comment:
9-12 years. For everyone who has enjoyed the many ‘Horrible Science’ titles, this is a packed single volume touching on everything from Bloodthirsty Bugs to the Unbelievable Universe. Knowing their audience well, Nick Arnold and Tony de Saulles revel in the gruesome details – there are lots of gory pictures full of dripping blood - but not at the expense of making sure the science is accurate and comprehensible. Very much a first introduction rather than an in-depth study, this provides a useful resource to short circuit all those ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions. Who is Julia Eccleshare ?

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
SynopsisThe Stunning Science of Everything by Nick Arnold

About The Author
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!"
