40 Super Human Body Tricks

by The Surfing Scientist, Ruben Meerman

ABC Books. Australian, Junior, Young Adult, Children’s Non-Fiction. Paperback rrp $12.99

Here is a book that children will pour over and adults will peek into - only to discover they are “testing” out some of the tricks. Exactly that happened in our household!

I am not going to tell you anything about the tricks inside this book but they are amazing! And when you read about the Iron in your breakfast cereal … the manufacturers may just be telling the truth!

Every body trick has step by step instructions with photos to demonstrate and explanations to the reasoning behind them. There are recipes and fun facts as well as some cool things to help you look ‘good’ on Halloween night!

This is a fun book that every child and parent will enjoy – I can recommend the spinning around! All tricks are simple and require very few additional props. Meerman is a surfer with a physics degree and a graduate diploma in science communication. He appears on ABC’s Rollercoaster and Catalyst and performs hundreds of live science shows in schools around Australia. 40 Super Human Body Tricks introduces science to kids in such a way they will quickly be yelling for more.
