Basher Science: The Periodic Table, Elements with Style! created and illustrated by Simon Basher, Written by Adrian Dingle:
The Periodic Table introduces budding chemists to the world of the elements as it's never been seen before. Designed to resemble popular networking Web sites, the pages of this book feature "homepages" for each of the chemical elements -- complete with witty and informative profiles written by the elements themselves, plus a personally chosen picture.
High school chemistry teacher Adrian Dingle is the creator of the award-winning chemistry Web site: adriandingleschemistrypages.com. His site has been recommended by the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse, the BBC, the National Science Teachers Association, and Cornell Theory Center --among many others. Born in England, he has taught in both the United States and United Kingdom and now lives in Atlanta, Georgia, where he teaches at The Westminster Schools. He holds a B.S. and a postgraduate certificate in education from the University of Exeter.
Artist and designer Simon Basher has fun playing in the world of contemporary character design. Inspired by a love of simple line work and a rich color palette, his characters fill the gap between edgy manga and the cuteness of Hello Kitty. He lives in England.
MamaGatorWest VirginiaAge: 25-34Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5A cute book but not very thoroughSeptember 4, 2014MamaGatorWest VirginiaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 1I bought this for my son's 10th birthday, as he had requested something to teach him more about the periodic table of elements. I don't care for the illustrations (not very interesting to me, tough my son likes them) and our main issue is this book only teaches a select few elements. There are many left out.
