Reviews

The brief text is in a jaunty rhyming format, and its enthusiasm is mirrored in the illustrations....This will have broad appeal. -- Booklist Pair with Andrea Beaty's Ada Twist, Scientist for a terrific session on the trial and error of tinkering and problem-solving. A recommended general purchase. -- School Library Journal
