From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-5?This book grabs readers by making science fun and encouraging them to expect the unexpected. Double-page spreads presenting information about 6 scientific surprises, such as the invention of photography, the discoveries of penicillin and Velcro, and the birth of a new volcano, are sprinkled among 11 experiments. The activities emphasize the unpredictable, e.g., forcing water to move wood and making cans roll backward. Each activity is followed by a concise explanation of the scientific principle involved. The black-and-white illustrations include pen-and-ink drawings of the procedures used and photos of the inventors and scientists mentioned. Safety rules and adult guidance are stressed. This slim volume serves as a teaser for more detailed books such as Jean Potter's Science in Seconds for Kids (Wiley, 1995).?Kathryn Kosiorek, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Brooklyn, OH
