Glitter Everywhere!: Where It Came From, Where It's Found & Where It's Going

Fans of How It’s Made will love this fresh, irreverent look at the science and story behind glitter.

If you love glitter, this book is for you. If you hate glitter, this book is also for you.

Everyone seems to have an opinion about glitter. But how much do you know about the tiny, shiny confetti? What makes glitter glitter? Why does it stick to everything? Who invented it? How is it made? Is glitter bad for the environment?

Chris Barton’s informative wit and Chaaya Prabhat’s vibrant art make Glitter Everywhere sparkle as it covers the good, the bad, and shiny of all things glitter.
