Wonderful Life with the Elements
Quirky and fun chemistry text
- Personifies each of the elements
- From Bunpei Yorifuji
- Translated from the Japanese
Quirky and fun chemistry textWe bet in your head you already personify some of the elements on the periodic table. We remember fluorine is highly reactive because in high school we were told it was a bit of a "floozie" who'd hook up with anything. Despite the fact that that was 25 years ago, that's still taking up space in our heads instead of the names of our coworkers' children or the PIN for the voicemail system. (12345? We're going to try 12345.)
Let Bunpei Yorifuji's delightful illustrations reintroduce you to each of the elements on the periodic table (including flerovium and livermorium but not nihonium, moscovium,
tennessine, or oganesson which haven't been formally named yet). It's a fun book to keep on the coffee table (or in the bathroom) for when you need a minute's worth of brain entertainment that doesn't necessarily have a plot, but, obviously, it'd be great for a teen interested in going into chemistry.
