Description

Join Harriet, Darwin's pet tortoise, and Milton, Schrodinger's indecisive cat on a time-travelling quest of discovery, unravelling scientific exploration and religious beliefs and how they fit together.

Throughout the centuries humans have been looking for answers to BIG questions - how did the universe start? Is there a God behind it? Has science explained away the need for a God, or can faith enhance scientific discovery?

On this adventure Harriet and Milton are investigating who the first scientists were. Step into Harriet and Milton's time machine, bring some snacks, and enjoy this curious quest of discovery - become a Mesopotamian stargazer, cast your vote in 'Greece has Scientific Talent', and meet Pythagoras!

Written by Julia Golding, winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2006, and the Nestle Smarties Book Prize 2006.

Featured Reviews

I have to admit that this is my favorite in the series so far, because I love ancient Greece. In the second book of the, Curious Science Quest series, Milton and Harriet find themselves in ancient Greece learning about Greek philosophers, advancements in mathematics and medicine, architecture, transportation, and the rise of the Roman empire and the birth of modern religion. I think the illustrations in the 2nd book were much better than the 1st and the plot is thickening as they travel through time to discover whether religion and science are really that different. I would recommend beginning the series with this book, rather than the first.

Thank you NetGalley and Lion Children's for the opportunity to read an advance reader copy.
