George's Marvellous Experiments - Inspired by Roald Dahl's fantastic tale with illustrations by Quentin Blake (Puffin Books)

I'm very sure you'll remember reading "George's Marvellous Medicine" (and if you haven't, WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU DOING? GET THAT SORTED NOW!) and will also remember George Kranky's rather unique way of dealing with his nasty stink-toothed old Grandma.
Sharp eyed amongst you may remember Roald himself telling you very sternly that George's medicine should NOT be made at home, and under no circumstances should you feed the contents of your bathroom and undersink cupboards to your least favourite relatives (or their chickens for that matter).
Well, er, we'd like to retract that - a little bit at least, because in "George's Marvellous Experiments" you can indeed SAFELY conduct a whole raft of brilliant and fun experiments at home, with some great explanations of the science behind the effects you'll observe.
Want to make mountains of green squishy goo? Explode cola bottles in a minty volcanic mess? Fire film canisters off into the great blue yonder?
Of course you do! And you'll find all those experiments, and many more, in this fabulously illustrated book full of the spirit of the original stories.
Science is brilliant fun and what better way to introduce your little ones to some brill science (and of course the amazing original story too!)
Now if you'll excuse us, we're still working on that growth potion...
"George's Marvellous Experiments" based on the Roald Dahl book with illustrations by Quentin Blake is out now, published by Puffin. (kindly supplied for review)
