              Wonderful Life with the Elements is a fun and mildly insane adventure through the periodic table of the elements. The perfect gift for geeks, Japanophiles, nerdy kids, and anyone interested in science, the book illustrates the key characteristics of each element with wit and humo...r. Famed Japanese artist Bunpei Yorifuji dissects the elements in an eccentric way, using cartoon humans to represent each element and its chemical properties. For example, heavy elements are fat; synthetic elements are robots; and the noble gasses all have Afros. Readers discover each element's important properties, such as density, atomic number, and boiling point, as well as fun, lesser-known characteristics such as their common uses and where they're found. Full of whimsy and cool Japanese design, this book is perfect for anyone who enjoys humor and levity mixed in with their science. Where else will readers find Scandium as a greedy industrialist or Nitrogen as a mohawked, pointy bearded, floating dude?
