Professor Astrocat's Atomic Adventure - Review & Competition



Physics is a very important part of every day lives. Just go for a walk through the park and you'll see for yourself. From the wind that rustles the tree's, to the sun that keeps us warm, to the car that drives us around and the food that gives us energy to play, physics is all around us, all the time!

As you journey through Professor Astrocat's Atomic Adventure you will see how physics explains all of these amazing things, and a whole lot more. You'll look at the basic laws of the universe, the fundamental rules that describe the nature of our world and beyond. 





Professor Astro Cat's Atomic Adventure
Suitable for 7 - 11 year olds.
Priced at £14.99
Hardback edition

This is the seecond in the series of science books created by Walliman and Newman.

The previous title Professor Astro Cat's Frontiers of Space was shortlisted for the ABCD Covered design award 2014.

Perfect for 7-11 year olds and contains digestible facts about physics to get kids excited and entertained when it comes to science.

Retro illustrations and colours that have a wide appeal not just to the art and design community but will attract the kids too. 



With this book being aimed at older children it wasn't suitable for Noah but I have a budding scientist in the family, my 7 year old nephew! He grinned from ear to ear when I presented the book to him and when he realised it was all about science, well that just made his day. He loves to learn and Professor Astrocat's Atomic Adventure has gone down a storm with him.
