Galadriel Watson; Illustrated by Samantha Dixon
R380 R308 Discovery Miles 3 080 Save R72 (19%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Creatures sprint, slither, and soar in this STEM-driven dive into the extraordinary, everyday ways animals move! A squid jets through the ocean like a rocket. A cheetah races after a zig-zagging gazelle. A fishing spider walks on water with its eight hairy legs. All animals must move. Whether on the hunt for something to eat, on the run from being eaten, or in search of a mate or a safe place to live, their lives depend on marvelous motion. In this fascinating introduction to biomechanics, seasoned non-fiction writer Galadriel Watson draws on biology, physics, and other sciences to show readers the incredible ways a variety of creatures move to meet their everyday needs-and overcome the physical forces working against them. An accessible, lively style and dynamic design will keep readers engaged, while Samantha Dixon's energetic illustrations and mechanical diagrams reinforce STEM concepts on each spread.
