Summary
The Food for the Gods is a science fiction saga by H. G. Wells. Mr. Bensington and Professor Redwood were amongst a new breed of men, or 'scientists' as they had become known. After discovering Herakleophorbia IV, a chemical that accelerates growth, the countryside is overrun with giant chickens, rats, wasps and worms. Havoc ensues, but Benson and Redwood are undeterred and begin to use 'the food of the gods' on humans. Soon, children are growing up to 40 feet high. But where will the experiments end? Thought provoking and beautifully illustrated, this classic tale captures the imagination of readers of all ages and inspires a love of literature and reading. A must-have classic for your digital library!
