The Stunning Science of Everything is a nonfiction book written by Nick Arnold and illustrated by Tony De Saulles. It is most likely intended for children ages 7-11.

Summary: Accompanied by goofy cartoons and filled with disgusting details, this book covers many different scientific topics including bugs, dinosaurs, weather, and the beginning and end of the universe.

The layout of this book is very unusual so captures the attention of the reader and draws them in. This layout also means it is very easy to read, yet still factual.

Silly cartoons punctuate the scientific theories, discoveries, and explanations inthis volume full of the offbeat, thebizarre, and the just plain “gross.” Slime, disease, bloodsucking bugs, bodily functions, and more are all discussed in a fashion designed to get kids’ attention by exploiting the “gory” factor.

Clearly aimed at the "we still find poop funny" age group, this book actually manages to lightly cover a wide variety of scientific theories. There's a tiny bit of ecology, biology, anatomy, quantum theory, and other ideas in the overly-colorful pages. There's also booger jokes. It's an interesting combination and the choice to live the British hummour and slang in (with a small, unnecessary "translation glossary" in the back) works well.

A rather fun romp through all of science. A tad hyper for my weary, embittered adult tastes, but as a child I would have obsessively read and re-read this for the concise science facts and fart jokes.

This book is gross and informative - my 10-year-old and I are reading it and cackling.
