Have you ever wondered what it would take to make the world's foulest stink bomb? Or how about creating your own homemade brand of toothpaste? Both could be devised right in your kitchen! Science doesn't have to be all about boring lab reports and tiresome test tube measurements-it can be fun, explosive, and really gross. Just think about the old alchemists who tried to turn urine into gold or the acids that can burn flesh right off the bone. Not to mention dangerous metal elements, fiery reactions, and gasses that could make anyone gag. But there are safer ways to experiment with the more horrible aspects of science, and all the necessary ingredients can be collected throughout your home-under proper parental supervision, of course. Nick Arnold, the Aventis Prize-winning author of the Horrible Science books-including Disgusting Digestion and Bulging Brains-makes science fun and fascinating for kids. Narrator George K. Wilson reads with the fervor of a mad scientist.
