Science with the squishy bits left in. "Painful Poison" will dish up a deadly dose. Are you brave enough to discover: how to turn your brother or sister into a zombie slave? Why you are breathing in poison right now? What is the secret of the vomit goblet? If you think you can stomach the sick side of Science, then read on as we get wise to the wicked world of killer chemicals. Track down vile villains as a poison detective, meet snakes, spiders and other poison pets and discover the dreadful details of the "Gruesome Guide". With fantastic fact files, quirky quizzes and crazy cartoons, "Painful Poison" is reading to die for. Science has never been so horrible. It is the complete lowdown on this fascinating and diverse subject. "A Gruesome Guide to Poison" will cover everything from plants and creatures that use poison for attack and defence to poisons that are affecting our planet such as car pollution, radiation and the result of burning off fossil fuels. With lost lab notes, and terrible tales, like the Victorian arsenic murders and the story about the Arctic survivors who were poisoned by eating polar bear livers, this is perfect subject matter for "Horrible Science".
