Neither I nor my brother can remember the name or author of the crazy irreverent Illustrated History of Science book we had as kids.
The author's name may have contained Arnold.
This book learned me lots of my basic science facts. (Much like how most of my European history knowledge comes from Asterix.) It was written in comic book, black/white pen and ink style.
One of my favorite sections was van Leeuwenhoek looking through a microscope at a bacteria, followed by a picture of the bacteria looking back at v.H., and giving him a raspberry.
Oh please, doesn't anyone know this book? I must have it again! My kids must run around like we did, yelling "Mitosis are stuck together!"
