Professor Astro Cat’s Atomic Adventure, is a mind boggling new non fiction tome from the duo who gifted us Professor Astro Cat’s Frontiers of Space in 2013.
‘Did you know that physics is a very important part of our everyday lives? Just go for a walk and you’ll see for yourself. From the wind that rustles the trees and the Sun that keeps us warm,’
… and so begins Professor Astro Cat’s introduction to physics. This picture book is brilliant. Professor Astro Cat’s Atomic Adventure is chock-a-block full of questions, and thankfully provides the answers, whilst maintaining an engaging and motivating dialogue with the reader.
From gravity and molecules, to particles and lights, Dr Dominic Walliman’s narrative guides the reader through a myriad of exciting facts. Snippets of information are placed alongside instructive and illuminating illustrations from Ben Newman. His vivid style works wonderfully to help readers visualise the explanations.
Professor Astro Cat’s Atomic Adventure’s informative 64 pages mean this book has much to offer repeated readings. The combination of Walliman and Newman has resulted in an exhilarating dive into the world of physics – after reading the page on quantum physics I’m feeling rather knowledgeable!
Non-fiction books are seeing a huge rise in popularity at the moment. With great quality books like this one being produced, it easy to see why they are hard to resist.
