Why were there no books like this when I was young? It would have made such a difference to me.
This is a book that makes learning about science engaging, entertaining and fun while still teaching so much to young scientists. The premise…Harriet, Charles Darwin’s tortoise, and Milton, Shroedinger’s Cat are friends with a time machine. They are traveling in the 17th and 18th centuries in this entry. The number of scientists and thinkers whom they meet is staggering and impressive. To name just a few: Boyle, Harvey, Newton, Pascal and, of course, many more. Facts about each are easily incorporated in the text. There are experiments that can be replicated. There are even some jokes and a bit of a plot.
I don’t often give five stars in my reviews but this one deserves it. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this read that will encourage young scientists to learn to explore.
