Staff Reviews


"The act of discovery is a messy business, but the fearless Ada Twist does not shrink from a challenge (or flinch in the face of stinky experiments). This plucky follow-up to kid favorites Iggy Peck Architect and Rosie Revere Engineer will get readers using their observational skills, dreaming big, and thinking about SCIENCE in a majorly awesome way!"

— Meghan
