Praise

"A clear triumph for the scientific method....as funny as it is sneakily informative."—Kirkus Reviews

"The accessible text, silly premise, and simple yet accurate incorporation of scientific principles make this a unique gem for elementary collections.... This is a great read-aloud to foster discussions around the scientific process and important lessons about friendship. An excellent addition."—School Library Journal

"With boisterous drawings...and a preface providing key terms in the scientific method, it's great inspiration for classroom science units or at-home Venn-diagramming."—Publishers Weekly

"From the informative endpapers to the graph paper backgrounds, readers will be absorbed by every playful scientific detail. Terrific choice for classrooms and read-alouds to introduce themes of friendship and science."
