A Question of Science: Why does a mirror show things back to front? And other questions about light by Anna Claybourne

A fun, quirky science series that tackles the questions other books are afraid to ask!

Why does a mirror show things back to front? Why is the sky blue? And where does light go when you switch it off? A Question of Science: Light answers all these questions and much more.

With an engaging question and answer format, these books draw kids into science in a fun way. Each book features one question per spread with a clear explanation to follow, diagrams and fun and humorous illustrations. The quirky questions are designed to range from those that children will often ask to things they may never have thought of, but will still be keen to know the answer to.

Perfect reading for curious young scientists aged 8 and up.
