What keeps objects from floating out of your hand?
What if your feet drifted away from the ground?
What stops everything from floating into space?
Gravity.

As in his previous books, Redwoods, Coral Reefs, and Island, Jason Chin has taken a complex subject and made it brilliantly accessible to young readers in this unusual, innovative, and very beautiful book.

Chin's approach makes this book a must-have common core tool for teachers and librarians introducing scientific principals to young students.

Review:

“* Charming . . . Concise diagrams and tongue-in-cheek pictures that accompany the instructions are as entertaining as they are effective.” ―BCCB, STARRED REVIEW

“Hypnotically arresting . . . Sublime illustrations.” ―The Horn Book

“* After stunning explorations of the Galápagos Islands and California's redwoods, Chin turns literally high-concept for a study of gravity's pull . . . With an elegant, spare text and playful, daring pictures, Chin's latest opus exerts a powerful pull all its own.” ―Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

“* Chin (Island) takes his exceptional artistic gifts into outer space, painting with disciplined exuberance a series of spreads that explain the fundamentals of gravity....In his embrace of the wild possibilities of a world without gravity, Chin outdoes himself.” ―Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

“* Chin introduces youngsters to the concept of gravity, presenting the information in highly understandable language and in captivating paintings that will delight young readers.” ―School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

“A visually impressive piece of storytelling, it will please kids who enjoy what-if scenarios.” ―Booklist
