Young biographies featuring some of the most famous figures in the history of science

Isaac Newton tells the life story of this key scientific figure - covering his origins as the son of a farmer through to his work in mechanics, optics and mathematics, his famous gravitational studies, and his enduring legacy today. Super Scientists is a series of first biographies introducing some of the world's great scientists, retelling their life story and explaining why their work was important. Illustrated with archive images and photographs, the chronology of each lifetime is emphasised by a timeline that runs through the book. Breakthrough panels highlight key discoveries or invite children to try out simple related experiments. Perfect for readers aged 5 and up.
