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 the beginning of the modern scientific age - experiment with Boyle and Hooke, and meet Newton. Step into Harriet and Milton's time machine, bring some snacks, and enjoy this curious quest of discovery.

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

This book was not only an impressive and surprising read, but the first I read of its kind. Such a delight that I can't wait to read more by this author. It gets 5 stars! I gave an honest review of this book in exchange for a copy of it.

Time travel to find out what the universe can unlock if we only search and reveal it was genius and this trek was like meeting the stars one by one having them tell the story of age old secrets! This is a great book for all ages to hear and read!!

Why were there no books like this when I was young? It would have made such a difference to me.

This is a book that makes learning about science engaging, entertaining and fun while still teaching so much to young scientists. The premise...Harriet, Charles Darwin's tortoise, and Milton, Shroedinger's Cat are friends with a time machine. They are traveling in the 17th and 18th centuries in this entry. The number of scientists and thinkers whom they meet is staggering and impressive. To name just a few: Boyle, Harvey, Newton, Pascal and, of course, many more. Facts about each are easily incorporated in the text. There are experiments that can be replicated. There are even some jokes and a bit of a plot.

I don't often give five stars in my reviews but this one deserves it. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this read that will encourage young scientists to learn to explore.

Very interesting book, educational and makes the read ask questions from easy to deep life questions. The Do It At Home Experiments are an amazing addition as well, the perfect book for a rainy day at home!
