Praise for Dragons vs. Unicorns:
"Proves that science and fun go together like molecules in a polymer."
--School Library Journal
"It's a great introduction to the basics of Chemistry that is readily accessible to a variety of ages . . . . The way the everyday chemistry is blended in is done seamlessly, and has [me and my ten-year-old son] noticing how we are all doing a little bit of science everyday."
