Discover the secrets of Planet Earth, from its fiery insides to the landforms and lifeforms on its surface!

Basher Science: Planet Earth is a compelling guide to a community of characters who keep the world in motion. Learn just how hot it is at the Earth's core and how volcanoes are created, before discovering the difference between peninsulas and plateaus, and exactly who, or what, is the mysterious El Niño.

Key concepts such as fossil fuels and climate change are broken down and illustrated in Basher's signature approachable style - making it easy for kids to understand these topical subjects. Kids can also learn about the unique features of different environments around the world, from the frozen Arctic to the African savannah.

Basher's unique illustrations combine with chatty, first-person text by expert author Daniel Gilpin to hook even the most reluctant readers and help them to understand the science behind the headlines.

Perfect for home or school, Basher's highly original books make difficult concepts tangible, understandable and even lovable. With sales of over 3 million copies around the world, they are a brilliant way to communicate science, history and geography.
