Have you ever heard of woolly saucepans? Or wondered what noise the sun makes? Have you ever had scary sausage-fingers? No? Well, you can read all about them in this new collection by Michael Rosen. With 100 poems all about science and technology, you'll soon find out about clothes that breathe, melting cats and lots, lots more!

Michael Rosen is a poet with a superb ear for the rhythms of language * Guardian * One of our most popular writers - the champion for every bored, overdrilled, tested-to-tears pupil in the land * The Times * I think poetry for children needs to be saved from the cold dissection of right and wrong answers and put back into rooms and halls full of wonder, compassion, haunting, laughter, music and rhythm. We need to hear its many cultures, many voices, many sounds. This is about wide and diverse participation. Diverse verse for all! * Michael Rosen, Children's Laureate 20072009 *
