Gut-Wrenching Gravity and Other Fatal Forces

“Can forces really be fatal? How can gravity become gut–wrenching? Teachers of elementary and middle school aged students are very aware of their students’ fondness for all things repulsive. In writing her Disgusting & Dreadful Science series, Anna Claybourne utilizes this trait in adolescents to inform them of science content on a variety of topics.” --NSTA, 12/13 “Those titillated by the title will be further drawn by the snazzily designed pages, short patches of creatively arranged text, colorful illustrations, and plenty of white space. The awesome facts—a mouse can survive a 328-foot fall, black holes have superstrong gravity that causes “spaghettification,” and much more—should keep readers glued to the pages.” --Booklist, 04/13
