Basher Science: Core Science Library: Biology-Physics-Chemistry (Basher Science) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's a Science party as more than 175 of Basher's iconic characters get together to explain the basics of three core topics. Things get rolling in Chemistry, as readers meet all the elemental characters like Gas, Polymer, and Smart Material, as well as handy folks like Test Tube, Pipette, and Bunsen Burner--he's a real hottie! The fun continues in Biology, where readers get an introduction to Cell and DNA, and proceed through all the basics of life on Earth including the human body, plant, and animal life. From there, readers explore 'why matter matters' in Physics, as they meet all the forces which rule our universe from the fundamentals like Mass and Weight, right up through modern rockstars like Quark and Gluon. Throughout it all, Basher's hip, kicky style, personalizes the information and makes the fundamental ideas easy to remember. With glossaries in each book, rock-solid scientific information, and bonus fold out posters for Biology and Chemistry, this is an unbeatable--and entertaining--introduction to the basics of Science.
