Synopsis

Things are hotting up, but not in a good way! Every year, millions of people across the globe find themselves at the mercy of Heat Wave, Drought or Flood – they’re friends of Climate Change, who is wreaking havoc on our planet.

Step inside to learn more about these extreme characters. But first, let Weather System, Seasons and Climate tell you how weather works. Find out just what it is about Climate Change that is making things more intense. And whatever you do, don’t panic! Just as there are troublemakers in this turbulent world, there are heroes who want to calm things down: Flood Defences and Firefighting will bring you up to speed.

Basher Science Mini: Extreme Weather gives kids the lowdown on one of the most pressing problems that we face: extreme weather. Basher's unique illustrations combine with chatty, first-person text by expert author Tom Jackson 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.
