Reviews

Students will find this a fun book to browse independently or share with friends. An excellent choice for reluctant readers in search of entertaining, informative nonfiction. -- School Library Journal

Parents who slugged through science back in the day might want to take a peek, and science teachers confronting the lost, the confused, or the disengaged should welcome this as a lively back-up plan. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

This will be devoured by even the most reluctant readers or scientists. -- Kirkus Reviews

Reluctant readers will find both format and subject appealing. Public libraries and media centers should acquire multiple copies, if possible, to meet certain demand. -- VOYA

Children will have fun browsing the spacious pages and sharing what they read with adults, who can join in the explanations about complex stuff, including time travel and Einstein's theory of relativity. -- Booklist

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.
