'Never mind the kids, I've had an education from reading this book! ... Recommended for any budding scientists, eco-warriors or fans of weird facts' Rachel Riley, TV presenter and mathematician 'The best way to get out of being bored is discovering something new. The great thing about this book is it whizzes you off to a world of facts you had never heard of. Result: not being bored. Result!' Michael Rosen, Children's poet and author 'Every page bursting with fantastic facts you never thought you needed to know. Indispensable, planet-saving, fact-tastic fun for all the family!' Dallas Campbell, BBC Science presenter In this new book, TV science expert Dr Emily Grossman answers incredible and important questions about our natural world. You'll find out silly things like why some animals do square-shaped poos and which direction a dog is likely to face while weeing, but you'll also learn what climate change and wildlife loss are actually doing to our planet and what YOU can do to help. Covering a diverse range of key science topics, from human biology and animals and plants to the weather and space, Dr Emily shows readers why Earth is so weird and wonderfully great. Did you know there's a planet in our solar system where it actually rains diamonds? Imagine that! If you lived there, you'd always be picking them out of your hair, your pockets and probably your pants! Dr Emily also tackles Earth's BIGGEST problem: climate change. Through clear, sensitive explanations, you'll find out what is actually happening to our Earth and what this means for both humans and wildlife - and what we can all do to help! Written by TV science expert, STEM ambassador and advocate for women in science Dr Emily Grossman, this book will make your eyebrows rise, your jaw drop and your world WHIZZ! It will also give you hope about our future and how we can ALL make a difference. 'I love this book! It's funny, accessible and quirky and has exactly the right balance of questions and information to light the flame of scientific inquiry in young minds. A must-read for all budding young scientists' Lucy Hawking, Children's science author 'Since we got this book, all my kids want to talk about is diamond rain, tuna fish eyeballs and how to save the planet ... thank goodness Emily has written down the answers to their insatiably curious questions in a single handy and hilarious volume' Helen Arney, Science presenter, comedian and author Emily Grossman's first book Brain-fizzing Facts: Awesome Science Questions Answered was shortlisted for the Teach Primary Book Awards 2020.
