Featuring an array of animal bums - from little to large, and everything in between - this brilliantly silly picture book is sure to get children giggling.

Cats React to Science Facts, by Izzi Howell

Like every topic, science becomes more interesting when cats are involved. 'Cats React to Science Facts' is an engaging and fun way to understand the world of science. It's just purrfect! A vast cast of feline friends take us on a tour of the core areas of science from outer space and the human body, to forces and materials.

Bitesize text, fun photos, diagrams, dollops of humour and a react-o-meter all help to make science memorable and fun to learn. This book is a great gift for cat-mad science geeks aged 7+, covering key science topics in a unique way.
