About the Book

Created by author, cartoonist and entertainer Mike Barfield, Destroy This Book is the ultimate activity-based book, perfect for curious children who are inspired by cool science.

With fascinating information, colouring and doodling activities to complete, and a dozen press-out projects to create, there’s hours of fun to be had cutting, tearing and pulling apart the pages (all in the name of science, of course).

Projects include The Hoop Glider, Einstein Nodder, Turtle Racer and much more.

Best of all, no expensive craft supplies are required.
