Being twenty years old and looking back, I did my fair share of Science at school and it wasn't my favourite subject. Astronomy, on the other hand, was one of my favourite things to learn more about (including reading countless things about stars, other solar systems and comets). Fun Science actually covers some of these things and more, like the nervous system, our bodies and life itself. The strikingly intricate and wonderful illustrations are fun and lively and Charlie's distinctive voice shines through as he talks up the Universe to the readers.
Overall, Fun Science is just that: it's everything you thought was hard and unnecessary made fun and actually amazing to read. I've already been trying out some of my new knowledge on my friends and family and they've even delved into the pages themselves. After reading Fun Science I honestly feel like I've just sat through the best Science lesson of my life, complete with jokes and easy to learn and understand facts and not-so-Science things too. A definite five-star firework of a book.
Readers young and old.
