Professor Astro Cat's Atomic Adventure

Professor Astro Cat's Atomic Adventure

By Dr. Dominic Walliman and Ben Newman
Published by Flying Eye Books

The smartest cat in the Universe is back, and this time he's here to teach us about the fascinating world of physics.

Ever wonder how a boat floats? Or why the sky is blue? Or where electricity comes from? Well, listen up! Professor Astro Cat has the answers!

Fresh off his journey through the Frontiers of Space, Professor Astro Cat is back on Earth and ready to explain how physics is responsible for the wonders of the world around us! 

Ben's illustrations once again don each page of Atomic Adventure - much in the same way that they helped each topic/fact more digestible. I just can't get enough of the retro pictures and the fact that Ben can even make the periodic table look beautiful and stylised.

Again Ben has used a gorgeous colour palette and subtle textures that help make it feel even more retro and too cool for school. Dominic's words again are easy to understand and make the most difficult subjects an interesting read. Perfect for any child struggling to grasp physics.

Another fascinating book from a great duo! I hope Ben and Dominic have a few more of these up their sleeves as I think any child (or adult in fact) will not be able to put it down. A great way to learn about facts and topics that are usually not told in such a simple and interesting way, making learning a joy! Professor Astro Cat's Atomic Adventure is available from all good booksellers and from the Flying Eye Books website.
