Did you know that temperatures on the sun can reach 15 million degrees centigrade in the sun's core? You've got to be kitten me! Or that yelling for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days would produce enough energy to heat a nice cat-puccino? H(me)ow is that possible?
Izzi Howell is clearly some kind of genius for combining a plethora of amusing and cute cat pics and genuinely "wow!" scientific facts into one catty collection. After each fact (selected from topics as diverse as balancing forces, circuits, photosynthesis and global warming), readers can laugh along with feline funnies and see if they agree with the React-o-Meter.
It's hard to express just how brilliant this book is: think all your favourite funny cat GIFs combined with science, and it has a great design and an accessible approach. It's a perfect book for primary school or home, which will spark conversations and questions as well as containing plenty of "aww" appeal.
Never fear: there's also a Claw-ssary and a Kitten-dex at the end.
