The ABC of Science

Rasmus Åkerblom, illustrated by Maya Jönsson

The ABC of Science takes the reader on a breathtaking journey through scientific phenomena — from the atom to the eye, via meteorology, supermassive black holes and zygotes. Pitched at just the right level of complexity, it brims with warm-hearted humour in a generous big-book format.

Rasmus Åkerblom writes about complicated concepts with a light hand, and Maya Jönsson’s vibrant watercolours bring the facts to life. A fabulous scientific coffee table book for children aged 6–9 (and up) to lose themselves in and read again and again.

Åkerblom is a journalist and broadcaster whose first book, Hidden Wonders of the World: Discover How It All Works, was awarded the Linneaus Plaque for best non-fiction book in 2021. Jönsson is an illustrator known for flowing, quirky and intricate watercolours.
