"In this book, kids will learn the fascinating ways that things work by learning how they come apart"--
"Boom! Crash! Crumble! Demolition experts bring down a massive building within its own footprint; the hood of a car crumples in a crash, exactly as planned; and a wave of molasses covers a city in sticky goo. What is going on? From quick answers to in-depth explanations, we've got you covered. Discover all about the mighty -- and mightily controlled -- explosions responsible for demo'ing old buildings, producing awesome fireworks, and more. Dig into a world of things -- like your bike helmet -- that are actually designed to break. Peer inside awe-inspiring natural disasters like sinkholes and avalanches, and marvel at the fascinating science of how things break down." -- Back cover.
