    Description

    Meet the brainiest bunch of minds behind the greatest breakthroughs in world science, with this non-fiction book for kids. Go hunting for ancient fossils with Mary Anning, star-gazing with Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and investigating with Sir Isaac Newton, as you follow the stories of more than 50 great scientists and their life-changing discoveries.

    Scientists looks at the extraordinary breakthroughs from history through charming storytelling and in great detail, covering celebrated familiar figures as well as lesser-known trailblazers, each with a tale as intriguing as it is unique. From volcano obsessed Katia and Maurice Krafft and lithium-ion battery inventor Akira Yoshino, to colour-pioneer Chika Kuroda, who became Japan's first female Bachelor of Science - the scientists in this book have all used their intelligence and determination to make vital discoveries that have improved our world forever. These groundbreaking developments range from some of the earliest findings, to modern-day advancements in science and technology.

    Beautiful descriptions of the scientists' lives are brought to life through stunning watercolour illustrations by Jessamy Hawke and fantastic photography highlights the detail of their discoveries. The scientists come from all walks of life and parts of the world, making this the perfect book for every budding scientist.
