Wonderful Life with the Elements: The Periodic Table Personified

by Bunpei Yorifuji Author

This fun and mildly wacky adventure through the periodic table of the elements is great for fans of Japanese art or kids ages 10 and up interested in science. Eccentric cartoons present the key characteristics of each element and show how the characteristics are shared among different atomic elements. For example, all the synthetic elements are robots, all the noble gasses have Afros, and every drawing shows each element's important properties like its atomic number, density, and more. Filled with whimsy Japanese designs, this book mixes humor with science education.
