Schrodinger used
this cat in a box
to dream up the first
quantum paradox.
A paradox is something
that doesn't make sense.
there must be an assumption
that is causing offense.

Schrodinger's cat is a thought experiment meant to explain the flawed interpretation of quantum superposition. Chris Ferrie has broken down the theory into a whimsical picture book perfect for science nerds. Even the youngest generation of future scientists will enjoy the playful cadence of this lighthearted story!

'This whimsical little book is very much Schroedinger meets Seuss, or
perhaps The Cat in the Hat hides in a box. In a fun and simply metered
poem, University of Technology Sydney physicist Chris Ferrie explains quantum
theorist Erwin Schroedinger's famous cat thought experiment, providing simple
explanations of concepts such as wave-particle duality and superpositions along
the way. The verse is illustrated by plenty of child-friendly cartoons, courtesy
of Baltimore-based illustrator Kevin Sherry. Recommended for curious school
children, befuddled adults, and anyone who likes hard science and light
literature held in weird entanglement.' - Andrew Masterson, Spectrum
