Horrible Science Books
Horrible Science Kits

If you can stomach the sick side of science, then Horrible Science is for you!

Nick Arnold and Tony de Saulles are the award-winning author/illustrator combo who bring the books to you in all their revolting glory! Remember, don't go near these books if you're squeamish, because this really is science with the squishy bits left in!

The books are published in the U.K. by the publisher of the Murderous Maths series, so the reader will encounter a few English spellings, English sayings, metric measurements, etc. As an American, I find this adds to my enjoyment of the series.

There are many other Horrible Books that we have not listed here. All are available by special order. Just send your list to orders at

Science has never been so horrible!
