A fun, doodle-filled reworking of Why is Snot Green? by the acclaimed Glenn Murphy!

About the Author

Glenn Murphy works at the Science Museum in the UK. He recruits, trains and oversees the management of the 75-strong team of dynamic, bubbly science communicators, who perform shows and interact with the public on the galleries.

Glenn Murphy wrote his first book, Why Is Snot Green?, while working at the Science Museum, London. Since then he has written around twenty popular-science titles aimed at kids and teens, including the bestselling How Loud Can You Burp? and Space: The Whole Whizz-Bang Story. His books are read by brainy children, parents and teachers worldwide, and have been translated into Dutch, German, Spanish, Turkish, Finnish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Indonesian. Which is kind of awesome. In 2007 he moved to the United States and began writing full-time, which explains why he now says things like 'kind of awesome'. These days he lives in sunny, leafy North Carolina - with his wife Heather, his son Sean, and two unfeasibly large felines.

Reviews

"Students will find this a fun book to browse independently or share with friends. An excellent choice for reluctant readers in search of entertaining, informative nonfiction." --"School Library Journal

""Parents who slugged through science back in the day might want to take a peek, and science teachers confronting the lost, the confused, or the disengaged should welcome this as a lively back-up plan." --"Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

""This will be devoured by even the most reluctant readers or scientists." --"Kirkus Reviews

"

"Reluctant readers will find both format and subject appealing. Public libraries and media centers should acquire multiple copies, if possible, to meet certain demand." --"VOYA

""Children will have fun browsing the spacious pages and sharing what they read with adults, who can join in the explanations about complex stuff, including time travel and Einstein's theory of relativity." --"Booklist"
