The great thing about this book is it whizzes you off to a world of facts you had never heard of. Result: not being bored. Result!' Michael Rosen, Children's poet and author In this new book, TV science expert Dr Emily Grossman answers incredible and important questions about our natural world.

If you lived there, you'd always be picking them out of your hair, your pockets and probably your pants! Dr Emily also tackles Earth's BIGGEST problem: climate change. Through clear, sensitive explanations, you'll find out what is actually happening to our Earth and what this means for both humans and wildlife - and what we can all do to help!
