This stunning series is packed with cross-curricular information, case studies and dazzling photography and there is also a quiz, further reading section, a glossary and a comprehensive index, making this an ideal reference book for children aged 7+ that is both engaging and thought provoking. This is the perfect companion to The Hot Book. Expert author Dr Mike Goldsmith was formerly Head of Acoustics at the UK's National Physical Laboratory.
