David Macaulay | Mammoth Science: The Big Ideas That Explain Our World - ONLINE

d macaulayDavid Macaulay’s troupe of curious mammoths lead you through the basics of physics, biology, and chemistry in this unconventional and highly original guide to science.

From the interior of an atom to the solar system and beyond, the mammoths seek to understand the science! These intrepid science demonstrators will go to incredible lengths to educate and entertain. They wrestle with magnets to understand their powerful force, make mammoth models of different materials explore what gives them mass, and step into an X-ray machine to reveal the bones beneath their woolly exterior.

David Macaulay is an award-winning author and illustrator whose books have garnered numerous awards including the Caldecott Medal and Honor Awards, the Boston Globe–Horn Book Award, and an American Institute of Architects Medal. In 2006, he was the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, given “to encourage people of outstanding talent to pursue their own creative, intellectual, and professional inclinations.”

Superb design, magnificent illustrations, and clearly presented information - often with a touch of humor - distinguish his work. We are forunate that David Macaulay lives with his family nearby and is happy to autograph copies of Mammoth Science.
