General science never stops! You have to learn earth science, space science, life science, chemistry, and physics - and that's way too much! But before you administer hot compresses to the head and herbal tea for settling the nerves, try Science, Fresh Squeezed!As American History, Fresh Squeezed!, the first in the BrainJuice series, did for our country's past, Science, Fresh Squeezed! offers everything you need to know and understand about the entire body of scientific knowledge. Extracted from unreadable tomes, reduced to its essence, served up in hilarious poetry by Carol Diggory Shields, and garnished with off-the-wall drawings by Richard Thompson, these 41 poems will make another science class completely unnecessary. No guarantees on grades, though!
Carol Diggory Shields is a poet, a humorist, and a librarian -- the perfect qualifications for reducing immense bodies of knowledge into a very few lines of extremely funny verse. Grateful teachers and students can direct fan letters to her in Salinas, California, where she lives with her family and assorted pets.Richard Thompson is a political cartoonist whose work appears regularly in the Washington Post and US News & World Report. This is the first book he has illustrated for children. He lives in Arlington, Virginia with his wife, Amy, and their two young boys.
