The acid in the vinegar will have dissolved the eggshell and the egg will be like rubber. Drop it from a 20cm or 30cm height and watch it bounce back.

The Wrong Pong By Steven Butler This is a brilliantly funny but disgusting book about the life of a boy when he gets pulled down the toilet. He has to live for months with creatures who eat toadstools off their shoulders. He forgets about his “overling” (human) parents and is almost killed when he enters a swamp full of troll-eating animals. At the end of the book you will find lots of disgusting recipes too. Polly Howarth-Yates, 10
