"Chapters cover everything from arachnids to zits... all explored thoroughly through experiments, photos, cartoon illustrations, and an entertaining narrative... The gross-out quotient has a natural draw, but there's substantial scientific knowledge to be absorbed throughout." -- Publishers Weekly

"A lighthearted compendium of interesting formation and engaging, hands-on activities with gobs of kid appeal." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Expect to get messy, have a lot of fun, and do science!" -- Geek Dad
