Review quote

We loved this beautiful and imaginative book, which uses pop-ups to explore an unusual subject - how the weather works. We particularly liked the way that the pop-ups aren't just there for decoration, but are thoughtfully used to explain the science behind the weather. * Royal Society Childrens Book Prize * Uniquely interactive and visually stimulating, their stunning and informative book, How the Weather Works: A hands-on guide to our changing climate, engages readers of all ages in a variety of atmospheric science topics * American Meteorological Society * 'This is a book that, by encouraging the reader to both mentally and physically interact with it, is always going to be appealing ... This book, with easy to follow written explanations, absorbing colourful pages and interactive experiences, shows how the weather can be predicted ... This Is a visually exciting book and can entertain as well as inform the young reader' -- Anne Munro * Carousel * 'reader's eyes are in constant motion, watching pop-ups, interacting with pull-outs, flaps and rotating wheels, and following arrows around graphics. With so much to look at, examine and move, readers never get bogged down by complexity and are able o visualize weather as a dynamic force ... This is the kind of book that makes open discussions possible. It isn't hammering one position or another, but tying to inform children, so that they can become part of the bigger discussion on global warming and make up their own minds about what needs to be done.' * *
