Price  550.00
When the weather gets extreme, it shows off its awesome power by swatting cars around; sweeping away roads, bridges and houses; or making matchsticks out of buildings. Although extreme weather has been around throughout Earth’s history, it’s becoming more common due to the effects of climate change. We're a freaky crowd, so watch out! Title 4 in the Basher Science Mini series gives kids the lowdown on one of the most pressing problems that we face – extreme weather. Basher's unique illustrations combine with chatty, first-person text by expert author Tom Jackson to hook even the most reluctant readers and help them understand the science behind the stories that are hitting the headlines with more and more frequency.
