Description

Night Mayor Franklefink has vanished from the Transylvanian Express - and it's up to you to solve the case! Part of the Solve Your Own Mystery seri... You'll discover the answers to these questions - and many more - in this incredible collection of scientific facts about colour. We'll talk about light (the most important thing) and waves (not the kind you see at the beach - though you will learn why the sea looks blue!). You'll find out how some animals are able to glow in the dark and how others change their colours to hide from predators. Keep reading to discover why leaves change colour in the autumn, why your veins look blue but your blood is red, and why the language we use shapes the colours we see. Beautifully illustrated in full colour, this is a visual feast of a book which uses a rainbow to guide you through a universe of amazing scientific facts comparable to Bill Bryson's A Really Short History of Nearly Everything. About This Edition ISBN:

There are other beautiful optical phenomena that look a bit similar to rainbows, like glories (they require very small droplets of water in clouds and sunshine), halos, i.e. sundogs (they require ice crystals and sunlight) and some others. So looks like seeing rainbows in the Solar System is possible, though unlikely. Some exoplanets probably have the right conditions for the rainbows to form. Future ground-based and space observatories will tell us more about the orbits, structures and compositions of these exotic worlds!

Ben Hasler

Can you get rainbows in space? If you have seen the images coming from Tasmania of the Aurora Australis in the last week , then the answer would seem to be yes. You’ll discover the answers to these questions – and many more – in this incredible collection of scientific facts about colour. We’ll talk about light (the most important thing) and waves (not the kind you see at the beach – though you will learn why the sea looks blue!). You’ll find out how some animals are able to glow in the dark and how others change their colours to hide from predators. Keep reading to discover why leaves change colour in the autumn, why your veins look blue but your blood is red, and why the language we use shapes the colours we see . . . The facts are both fun and informative and illustrations by Liz Kay take the reader right through a vibrant colour palette and are so visually stimulating for a young reader. Colourful fonts, quirky captions and short, nicely divided paragraphs make the book lively and engaging to read and dip in and out of repeatedly. Have you ever wondered why frogs are green? Or if the sun is really yellow? Or maybe why the sea is blue? Well, this colourful science compendium suitable for KS2 may hold the answers!

Mae’r cyflwyniad yn esbonio beth ydy golau a sut y mae’r llygad dynol yn ei weld, yn ogystal â’r lliwiau coch, oren, melyn, gwyrdd, glas, indigo a fioled. Mae yna adrannau ar ddu a gwyn, fflworoleuedd, is-goch ac uwchfioled, ac esboniad o sut y mae rhai anifeiliaid yn gallu gweld yn y tywyllwch. Puffin started out as a non-fiction publisher, with its first title appearing in 1940. As the most iconic and well-known children’s book brand in the UK today, we are always on the lookout for innovative ways to tell the world’s favourite stories and for brilliant new debut talent and brands that connect with today’s young readers, from newborn up to twelve years old. Armistice Day: A Collection of Remembrance - Spark Interest and Educate Children about Historical Moments Author Guy Bass introduces SCRAP, about one robot who tried to protect the humans on his planet against an army of robots. Now the humans need his... But what causes these spectacular light shows? Indeed, what causes all the colours that we see in our world?Oeddech chi’n gwybod bod gan hipopotamysau chwys coch, bod llygaid glas yn hollol glir heb unrhyw bigment o gwbl, a bod bananas goraeddfed yn pelydru lliw indigo o dan olau uwchfioled? This book is a comprehensive introduction to and investigation of the phenomenon of colour and how each of the visible colours of the rainbow is created by light (the most important thing) and waves (not the kind you see at the beach – though you will learn why the sea looks blue!). Readers find out how some animals are able to glow in the dark and how others change their colours to hide from predators, why leaves change colour in the autumn, why our veins look blue but our blood is red, and how the language we use shapes the colours we see . . . Why is blood red? Why are carrots orange? Who invented the lightbulb? Why is the world ‘going green’? Is the sky really blue? And what is ultraviolet light? Mae’r llyfr ffeithiol hwn wedi’i ddarlunio’n hyfryd mewn lliw llawn drwyddo draw, ac mae’n hynod gyfeillgar a deniadol. Bydd darllenwyr o oedrannau amrywiol yn cael eu hunain yn mynd yn ôl ato dro ar ôl tro.

And you'll even be taught by a real astronomer, Dr Sheila Kanani, exactly how to make a rainbow - in space

Sheila is a planetary physicist and the current Education, Outreach and Diversity officer for the Royal Astronomical Society in London. She was appointed MBE in the 2022 New Year’s Honours List for services to astronomy and diversity in physics. Puffin is always on the look-out for new talent and is committed to giving children access to stories, through innovative formats and partnerships; ensuring that the magic of imagination passes from one generation to the next. How about Jupiter’s moon Europa ? We sure do remember the recent NASA reports about the discovery of the water plumes on the Jovian moon? Maybe the upcoming NASA Europa Clipper mission will return some beautiful photographs of Europa’s rainbows and halos! We cannot wait! Vibrantly illustrated in full colour throughout, this non-fiction book is incredibly friendly and appealing. Readers of a variety of ages will find themselves dipping into it again and again. To answer the last question, let’s see how to make a rainbow on Earth. Hopefully it will help us figure out whether the similar ingredients and conditions can be found on other planets and moons.
