Presenting chemistry as fiction, this brightly-colored and richly illustrated fairy-tale will enchant children between the ages of 8 and 12 -- as well as their parents. Over and over again throughout a whole lifetime. An experienced chemical educator, Kim K. Baldridge, teaches the topic in a subtle way, entertaining her reader and/or listener while stirring their curiosity. In this way, the book also lowers children's barriers to learning more about chemistry later on. Chemists and non-chemists alike will enjoy sharing in the children's delight as they explore this fantasy world together.
