Some animals have clever eyes – for example, rattlesnakes have heat-seeking eyes and eagles can see far further than a human. Experts have developed lots of different tools to help humans see hard-to-see things, such as into a person’s body, up into space, or deep into forests.

This book tells us odd and interesting body facts about the human brain, our feet … and everything in between.

The sea has lots of different areas to it, and different plants and animals live there. We look at the coast, rock pools, coral reefs and the Poles. We also look at the sea’s different layers – the sunlit zone, the deep, dark zone and the seabed. The sea is vast, varied and vital to life on Earth.

We look at lots of clever things that plants do and why they do them, including plants that pong like rotten meat to attract pollinators, and plants that eat animals.

Thousands of years ago the rulers of Rome built a formidable army and set forth to invade other lands. The places they conquered became part of the mighty Roman empire. We look at different aspects of Roman life, including how the army operated, what the Romans built and day to day life.
