BOOK REVIEW AND CONTEST: Guinness World Records: Science & Stuff

OWL reader Kara gives us the straight goods on this new book of fantastic science facts
Kara review Guinness World Records: Science & Stuff

Guinness World Records cover a whole variety of topics. From group howls to endless floor hockey matches, the strange, astonishing, and wonderful achievements out there seem limitless.

But we have a personal soft spot for when the Guinness people tackle one of our favourite topics: Science! Therefore, we are especially excited for their latest book: Guinness World Records: Science & Stuff. The book combines some of the grossest stuff imaginable with the rigorous proof of science ... meaning that you can tell definitively tell your parents why your closet smells so bad (among other things). So awesome!

But since we're science lovers ourselves, we knew that we had to have this alleged awesomeness proven independently. Enter our research assistant (a.k.a. book reviewer), OWL reader Kara! She was given a copy of the book for careful observation. What did her studies conclude?

Take it away, Kara!

Kara's independent report on Guinness World Records: Science & Stuff

This was a great book because it teaches you a lot of facts. It has lots of pictures, and it also makes you think about what's going on in this big world.

There's nothing that I didn't like about it—it's a good book.

I think other kids should read it because it's really interesting and will teach them new stuff.

I would give this book a 10/10.
