DO try this at home!
 
Science Stunts will start a chain reaction of fun and experimentation outside the lab. Readers will be amazed and delighted as they try magic tricks that are based in important physics concepts such as gravity, inertia, magnetism, sound vibrations, and more. Narrated by a humorous science showman, Dr. Dazzleberry (known to his fans as "Dr. Dazz"), readers go on a journey through many amazing scientific discoveries.  Amusing, edifying commentary from cartoon versions of Newton, Galileo, and Einstein inspire student scientist to experiment with glee.
  
An appendix and short bios of the physicists featured provide fascinating facts about the scientists' lives and achievements.
"Magical science that's amazing, astounding, and sure to appeal to middle-grade and middle school readers."
-Kirkus Reviews

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The Magic of Science and the Science of Magic
 
“Magic’s just science that we don’t understand yet.”
            —Arthur C. Clarke, writer and inventor.
 
“If you’re scientifically literate, the world looks very different to you.”
            —Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist.
 
            I’ve loved doing science experiments since I was little. When I was about ten, my parents encouraged this passion by taking me to science museums, such as the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto and the Exploratorium in San Francisco. I had a marvelous time pressing buttons, lifting levers, cranking gears, creating sparks, and so much more. Around that age, I also became very interested in magic and loved to perform card tricks, make balls float, and cause coins to vanish. I even performed shows at birthday parties as the Amazing Nadroj (my first name backward) and the Great Jordini (after my hero, Houdini). So, many years later, when I was asked to write a book for kids on physics that featured entertaining “magical” experiments, I jumped at the chance.
            What is physics, anyway? It’s a branch of science that explores topics such as motion, energy, magnetism, electricity, light, and sound. Physicists study itty-bitty things, like atoms, as well as super big objects, like stars, planets, and even galaxies. Physicists ask mind-blowing questions such as, “What if there were no gravity?” “What if you could travel at the speed of light?” and “What would happen if I dropped this watermelon off a tall building?”
            As you play around with physics in this book, you’ll learn some amazing science-based tricks and experiments that you can share with your friends and family. I also hope that you’ll enjoy showing off what you learn in “the Science Behind the Stunts.”
            It’s time to turn things over to the host of this book, a curious and enthusiastic scientist and showman whose enthusiasm for physics is unmatched. I present to you the one, the only . . . Dr. Dazz!
