why is science so important?

It saves lives, connects us with our natural world and helps us build a brighter future. In fact, science is the key to solving some of our planet’s biggest challenges!

Here at Hungry Tomato, we believe that every child has the potential to change the world with science. That’s why we created The Big Questions Answered – a series of non-fiction narrative books aimed to spark an interest in science and inspire the next generation of problem solvers!

The Big Questions Answered is more than just a collectable series of books; it’s a complete resource making the stories behind the greatest discoveries accessible and engaging for curious young minds. Plus, we offer a treasure trove of educator’s resources and fun extra material for kids to get lost in science.











At Hungry Tomato, we understand that not all children are natural bookworms. That’s why we take pride in crafting non-fiction books that are visually captivating, informative and, first and foremost, fun! We believe that the natural curiosity of children should be fed with engaging narratives and topics that excite young imaginations.


We’re based all the way down in Cornwall, a small county at the tip of the UK! Surrounded by a legacy of artists, writers, and storytellers who have been captivated with the magic of our coastal county, we’re constantly reminded of the power of creativity, and are proud to work and operate in Cornwall.
