Wile E. Coyote Physical Science Genius, 4-book Set
Since 1948, Wile E. Coyote has used complex contraptions to make repeated, unsuccessful attempts to catch the elusive Road Runner. This classic cartoon is known for both exaggerating and blatantly breaking the laws of physics. With lighthearted text and comical illustrations, Wile E. Coyote, Physical Science Genius, explains the science behind the coyote’s failed attempts.
Your child will learn fundamental physics while guffawing over Wile E. Coyote’s poorly planned ventures to get ahold of Road Runner. Wile E. Coyote Physical Science Genius is a lively introduction to the essential principles that govern physical science in our daily lives.
Plan on just 2-3 pages per week to finish in a school year.

Review by Stars of Jewels
”Wile E Coyote is such a wonderful series on teaching Physical Science to young children.”
”Obviously, the books appeal to a broad range of ages (as did the Looney-Tunes cartoons upon which they’re based)... The books also provide plenty of inspiration for doing some experimentation on one’s own.”
”I don’t love Wile E., I’ll admit. Don’t be mad at me – but I don’t like any of the Bugs Bunny sort of characters... But I do like taking big scientific concepts that are critical to understanding so much of science fundamentals and creating a way for kids to learn about them quickly and easily...”
”My kids are young… 9, 7, and 6. They are not going to remember every single scientific detail that is being explained in these books, BUT they are going to remember the silly illustrations and the crazy situations that Wile E. Coyote gets himself into.”
”Right away we loved the comic book vibes the book gave. Honestly, at first glance they just seem like fun books to read!!! When you start to dig in, you realize all the educational goodness mixed in to all the fun!!!”
”As you’ve probably deduced from the cover art — and from the Smash! Whoosh! Thud! Zoom! titles — the series uses the slapstick misadventures of Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner to vividly illustrate what happens when Wile E. underestimates the laws of physics.”
