Praise for Mr Shaha’s Recipes for Wonder

‘Several collections of kid-friendly experiments have been published recently, bu Mr Shaha’s Recipes for Wonder knocks most into a cocked hat. From a catapult constructed from a Pringles tube to the chemistry of a microwave cupcake, Alom Shaha first dangles an enticing activity, then meticulously – and thrillingly – details the scientific principles behind its operation. Emily Robertson’s glorious illustrations add to the book’s bursting, irresistible sense of excitement.’ — Imogen Russell Williams in The Guardian

‘I love this book. The experiments are fantastic (and so are the pictures), but they’ll also make you think. You’ll want to ask questions, and to try to find out the answers. Which is pretty much all that real scientists do too.’ — Philip Ball, former editor of Nature

‘Full of wonder and delight… Bound to inspire any budding young scientists.’ — Christopher Edge, author of The Many Worlds of Albie Bright
