Roald Dahl: George's Marvellous Experiments

Roald Dahl: George's Marvellous Experiments

Summary

George Kranky created his own Marvellous Medicine to deal with his grizzly old grunion of a Grandma. You definitely can't do that at home (so don't even try!), but here's some amazing science that you can do!

From concocting home-made slimy snot to creating your own volcano, these fun experiments are all easily done, following simple step-by-step instructions and using everyday household objects.

Inspired by Roald Dahl's terrific tale, this is the book for budding young scientists everywhere!
