Horrible Science: Really Rotten Experiments

Sickening science to do at home. Yippee! A bumper book of gross experiments from the kings of yuck. There are noisy ones, scary ones and stinky ones; dinosaur ones and space ones. Plus all the great cartoons and quizzes you expect from a Horrible book. You’ll also get to read about other people’s revolting inventions; such as pong-free underpants and super-thick slime. Finally, don’t forget to learn to dance like a skunk, eat like a chimp and talk in cat language.
