Science of Scary Stuff – Screaming Cup; Screaming Balloon

Science of Scary Stuff – Screaming Cup; Screaming Balloon

Are You Afraid Yet?

This book is laid out like a comic book – it’s full of drawings, pictures and all kinds of freaky facts about the things that usually scare us: monsters, UFOs, vampires, mummies, ghosts, haunted houses, and lots more scary stuff. For each freaky thing you get an explanation of the science behind it – either why the thing appears the way it does or why the thing is impossible. There’s nothing like a little bit of hard science to take the chill out of scary stuff. Of course some of the stuff remains gross…even if it isn’t scary anymore. So beware! Author: Steven O’Meara

The Stunning Science of Everything Gross Me Out
