Wonderful Life with the Elements: The Periodic Table Personified by Bunpei Yorifuji


Get to Know the Elements!

From the brilliant mind of Japanese artist Bunpei Yorifuji comes Wonderful Life with the Elements, an illustrated guide to the periodic table that gives chemistry a friendly face.

In this super periodic table, every element is a unique character whose properties are represented visually: heavy elements are fat, man-made elements are robots, and noble gases sport impressive afros. Every detail is significant, from the length of an element's beard to the clothes on its back. You'll also learn about each element's discovery, its common uses, and other vital stats like whether it floats—or explodes—in water.

Why bother trudging through a traditional periodic table? In this periodic paradise, the elements are people too. And once you've met them, you'll never forget them.

Includes pull-out poster!

Editorial Review

Helium: The Lighthearted Gas Raising Our Spirits and Voices


Children know it from funny voices and balloons. This ancient element could be found along with hydrogen minutes after the Big Bang. And without these two, no other elements could have been formed. They are the only two elements that are lighter than air, so maybe they’re kind of like the leaders, looking down on all the others? But helium, unlike hydrogen, is one cool cookie and doesn’t explode easily at all.

Explore helium and the rest of the elements in Wonderful Life with the Elements.
