This great picture book is a fascinating introduction to the cutting edge and fast-moving new area of science, nanotechnology. We all know that everything has to be made of something, but the way things are made is changing.  What’s more the materials that are used to make things are changing too and so is the science and technology.

It is a great achievement to produce a book that explains with great clarity such a potentially difficult area of understanding for young children.  This books does it with flair and empathy too.  It never talks down to its reader, nor does it go over their heads!

For budding scientists and engineers, this is just the job!.
