Horrible Science: House of Horrors

Publisher: Scholastic

Review

Enter the house of horrors and get up close with fleas, dust-mites, rats, microbes, germs and all manner of other uninvited guests that populate our homes in this entertaining book from the popular Horrible Science series.

Young readers will find plenty to both inform and entertain in the colourful spreads of this well-presented book, which is packed with lots of facts about everything from mice to mosquitos, and even features a 'gruesome glossary'. With plenty of humorous cartoon-style illustrations, a bold cover design featuring a squishy pouch of realistic-looking maggots, this is a lively and entertaining non-fiction book that children will be keen to pick up and explore, which takes a gleeful delight in exploring all things disgusting.
