Hello H2O

Written by John Agard

Illustrated by Satoshi Kitamura

Hello H2O Synopsis

Full of wonder and excitement at the discoveries of science, this collection of poems should be enjoyed by all who have an interest in science and the natural world. Providing numerous links between literacy and science and therefore ideal for cross-curricular work in the classroom, subjects range from water vapour to the wind, from robots to outer space, from physics to chemistry and biology.

Hello H2O Press Reviews

A quirky, engaging, slightly mutinous collection of poems about science. It is full of experiments with wordplay - and breezily illustrated in Kitamura's stylish black and white. - The Observer Wonderfully original and packed with wordplays. The poems are fresh, sometimes provocative and always offer something to think about or laugh at. Satoshi Kitamura's illustrations match the mood perfectly. This is a celebration of science and of poetry - a must for both home and school. - The Bookseller Praise for EINSTEIN, THE GIRL WHO HATED MATHS 'Hilarious ..will convert even the most reluctant mathematician to the fun to be had with numbers.' - Carousel 'Provides rich oportunities for linking maths with literacy ... You can count on [this book] to fascinate, engage and ignite an enthusiastic response to learn more about the magic of maths and the power of poetry.' - TES Teacher This collection of poems on a science theme is beautifully produced and the addition of witty illustrations by an award-winning artist completes the package. Wind, clouds, noble gases and cloned sheep - all add up to a celebration of science and poetry. - Bookfest 2004 - 2005 Only Agard could achieve this ... the true Poetsonian linking poetry with every area of life, while retaining the satirical spirit of the Caribbean calypsonian. Kitamura's simple and powerful illustrations
