Science Cartoons

Tom Gauld
NZD $27.99

A hilarious new collection poking fun at the scientific world, from The New York Times bestselling cartoonist and illustrator.

'Tom Gauld is always funny, but he's funny in a way that makes you feel smarter. Which is especially useful when he's being funny about science' Neil Gaiman

A dog philosopher questions what it really means to be a 'good boy'. A virtual assistant and a robot-cleaner elope. The undiscovered species and the theoretical particle face existential despair.

Just as he did with writers, poets and literary classics in Baking with Kafka, Gauld now does with hapless scientists, nanobots, and puzzling theorems - with comic strips funny enough to engage science boffins and novices alike.
