The Science Timeline Wallbook Summary

The Science Timeline Wallbook by Christopher Lloyd

Uncover the most amazing moments in scientific and technological discovery in this fascinating, over-sized timeline reference. Created in association with the Science Museum, the timeline is uniquely broken out into seven subject areas (such as math & measurement, building & inventions) as well as by date, with over 1,000 pictures and captions. From the stone age to today, the nearly six-foot-long timeline allows readers to compare events across the world at any given moment in time. An easy-to-read chronicle, written in the form of newspaper articles, highlights key moments in science, such as the first use of written numbers and the invention of the telephone. Other features include a page of letters to the editor, a fifty-question quiz, and a pocket magnifier to make it easier to explore all the timeline's details. Perfect for 6-14 year olds, and science lovers of any age!

About Christopher Lloyd

Bestselling author Christopher Lloyd began his career as a journalist with the Sunday Times newspaper. Then, while camping with his family, he had a critical realisation: even with a 1st class degree in history from Cambridge University and experience as a science writer, there was so much about the world he didn't know. So, he set out to write books that zoom out and tell the big stories, opening readers' eyes to how seemingly unrelated events fit together and showing them multiple perspectives on the world, all in highly engaging prose and matched with lively illustration and photography. Now, with several books in print, including the bestselling What on Earth Happened? and Absolutely Everything!, Chris divides his time between writing books and delivering lectures and workshops to schools, literary festivals, and a wide range of other venues around the world. He lives in Tonbridge, Kent, with his wife and two adorable terriers.

Andy Forshaw graduated in graphic design and illustration from London's Central Saint Martins college, and has worked on numerous online and publishing projects. Since 2010, Andy has created more than 5,000 illustrations for children's books. When not illustrating, Andy can be found exploring the countryside on his bike. He lives in London.
