Reviews from Around the World
" This book would be perfectly placed in a key stage 2 classroom or library, in addition to supporting work in Science it also raises questions about the future of technology and the planet with a great section about renewable energy. Books like this are vital, not just for helping to explain complicated topics but they are designed to get children thinking and asking questions about the world, which is always the best way to learn. - Acorn Books Blog
" Find out just how much fun science can be - and take part in some truly electrifying experiments - with writer and science teacher Gill Arbuthnott and physicist Nick Armstrong. We take electricity for granted but can you imagine a world with no TV, laptops or all the devices we use every day? What a horror story! Enjoy some terrible jokes and some wonderful explanations of how it all works… Perfect for ages 9 to 13. - Fife Cultural Trust
