Science is brimful with weird and wonderful language that poetry just loves - stuff like quarks and quasars, atoms and ammonites, organisms and oxygen, protons and photons, plankton and plasma, hydrogen and helium, electrons and electricity - to name but a few. How to Turn Your Teacher Purple! Sizzling science poems is a collection which brings out the entertaining aspects of science - from the big bang to inventions to weird-looking creatures. Following the success of our previous poetry collections, The Secret Life of Pants and Let's Recycle Grandad, this sparkling collection includes poems by Wendy Cope, Tony Mitton and many more.
