Imagine that Nature has an unseen cookbook full of different recipes and you might find that learning chemistry is fun! In their third stunning STEM book, the top team of author Colin Stuart and illustrator Ximo Abadía embark on a visual exploration of chemistry, atoms, elements and the universe, and come up with a scientific wonder that that will enthral children. Their 'nature recipes' can make everything from fish to fingernails and sand to Saturn, and all feature the 'ingredients' that are known as chemical elements, organised in a grid called the periodic table.
