The bright, busy artworks will encourage science-hungry children to pore over every detail and truly get to grips with the science that underpins everything around us. Information is delivered on multiple levels by expert author Rob Colson, allowing readers to dip in and out at speed, or take a deep dive into their favourite subjects.
