Includes 20 experiments for the sink, bathtub, and backyard.

Are you intrigued by the effects of smog or methane clouds, the "Harry Potter" dinosaur, the Australian blue bird that screeches chainsaw noises, ocean "snot," or the pink tentacles in the Korean dish where they swallow wriggling tentacles? Then strap on your hat for adventure and learn how planet Earth has been modified by the crazy chemistry of birdbrained biology and foolhardy physics of humans. The Young Scientist's Guide to Faulty Freaks of Nature is your guide to some of the strangest science ever seen, and in it you'll discover that some of the things scientists told you were "wrong" were actually right! Fictional hobbits? They are real! You'll even meet an all-new creature called a "spider-goat." So if you have a thirst for the weird, the wonderful, and the downright wacky, then this is the science book for you.
