Learn all about materials with Mo the Monster and his friends in this fun first science book for children aged 5+.

Mo is getting ready for his birthday this weekend. There’s lots to do: filling balloons, making icy drinks (and clearing up spills) and baking a cake – it’s a perfect time for Mo to find out about changing states of matter!

If a monster can understand science, anyone can! Join Mo the Monster as he discovers the basic principles of science. Along the way, Mo is kept focused (monsters are notoriously easily distracted) with the help of simple, clearly presented information, plenty of questions to answer and lots of science puzzles and activities.

The funny, colourful illustrations offer lots of scope for humour and interest to keep children engaged while they learn. Aimed at readers aged 5+.

Paul Mason (Author)

Paul’s books cover a wide range of subjects, from whether the Romans ate crisps to how to build the world’s best skatepark, but he writes mostly about sport. Whether you are interested in swimming, cycling, snowboarding, surfing or another sport, Paul has probably written something that will inspire you to get out and give it a try. Paul writes in a shack by the beach, which he shares with his one-eyed surf dog, Daisy.
