    Horrible Science Books

    Excellent books full of facts that can be used in all sorts of subjects. My son aged 8 keeps pulling them out to browse through. Contains valuable facts in an extremely child friendly way. Well done.

    Absolutely amazing. If a series were to go viral, it would deserve to be this one. And I would love to have 23 books! It would turn you into a science whiz! If you love horrible science write it in your review!

    I like the Dreadful Sounds book because in Science at school I am learning about sound and it gives me a load of information about sound. I think this would probably be one of the top 5 favourite books I have read at the most of it. I do think I would rate this a five. I think Horrible Science is a good collection.

    These books are fun to read but also teach you a lot of interesting information. Also really humorous.

    I have read many ‘Horrible Science’ books and haven’t once been dissapointed! I am currently reading ‘Bulging Brains’ and am thoroghly enjoying it! Nick Arnold has a wicked sense of humour and Tony’s drawing skills are amazing!

    I would like to read these sensational books because they inspire me to be mor einterested in Science. Just like Horrible Histories I would be amazed by reading these true facts about real life and the enviroment.
