What if a boring lesson about the food chain becomes a sing-aloud celebration about predators and prey? A twinkle-twinkle little star transforms into a twinkle-less, sunshine-eating-and-rhyming-Black Hole? What if amoebas, combustion, metamorphosis, viruses, the creation of the universe are all irresistible, laugh out loud poetry? Well, you're thinking in science verse, that's what. And if you can't stop the rhymes the atomic joke is on you. Only the amazing talents of Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith could make science so much fun.

Review quote

Clever and often droll, the verse ably juggles facts, meter, and rhyme schemes and usually reflects a student s point of view: grossed out by the human body, bored by yet another year of dinosaur study, more concerned about writing down the right answer than getting at the truth .A beautifully designed book intelligent, irreverent, inviting, and downright irresistible. Booklist, starred review"
