This series uses cartoon-style illustrations and humorous narrative text to make key topics in Science and Geography accessible and engaging. This approach encourages children to read about and understand complex ideas. The story follows what happens when a cliff is gradually eroded by the sea, wind, rain and ice. We find out how rocks from a cliff-face eventually become the grains of sand we find on the beach. This book also contains an experiment, useful websites and an index.

'Using a clear and engaging narrative format with well-conceived and lavishly produced illustrations, the Science Works series interweaves science knowledge into a story with humour and interest' Times Educational Supplement
