Book Weekend – Scientists

adaAda Twist, Scientist is the third book in a series by Andrea Beaty, illustrated delightfully by David Roberts.

Ada is a curious girl who’s endless questions turn her parents Art Deco home on it’s head.  Never has a heroine rocked rubber gloves and eye goggles so well!  And she demonstrates the use of scientific principles in her experiments.  The rhyming text glides effortlessly, while the cleverly detailed art adds humor and style.  Look for cameo appearances in the background by her class mates, Rosie Revere and Iggy Peck.

And if you haven’t already, read their stories!  Iggy Peck, Architect features a full spread homage to our very own mid-century modern Gateway Arch, and Rosie Revere, Engineer, was the first story to kick off this picture book series!
