Mad Science

I love mad science. There’s nothing more fun than invention, and using your imagination to create the weird and the wonderful and be caught up in the adventure of the unknown.

If you love mad science that’s appropriate for kids, and maybe a little educational (shhh, don’t tell anyone) then you will love reading these stories…I mean giving them to the children to read.

Hijack yourself into mad scientists’ territory

Duck the gelignite, avoid the Acme fuses. Do whatever you need to, just make sure you don’t miss out — it’s more than your life is worth.

Lilly’s bundled into Mr Big’s underground laboratory to create designer creatures – or die. She finds herself heading a team of misfits in charge of designing deadly giant snake-spider hybrids. Can she make her squirrel-snake hybrid, and escape – before Mr Big kills them all?

For ages 11+

Discover a world of spies and giant insects and danger. Solve problems. Decipher code.

You must defeat the Bugman, the evil villain turning insects into monsters, or die spectacularly. On the way, you never know what will happen – you might be caught in a sand trap with a waiting antlion, fly on beautiful giant butterflies, become an explorer or a time traveller or a spy.

For ages 8+

“It’s brilliant. I love every single thing about it. The science, the educational aspect, the humour, the sweetness… So easy to read and so fun… This is like the best thing I’ve read for kids since Dahl. Well done.” Michelle Child.

For ages 6-11

Quickly became a classroom favorite!

This is one of the best children’s books I have read in a while. Frankie is just such a delightfully fun, sweet, likeable character whose ideas and inventions never seem to go the way she plans. The book is full of laugh out loud funny scenes and quirky illustrations.

This became an instant classroom favorite. The kids LOVE Frankie and want to know when there will be more books about her crazy inventions. It is fun watching them play out the stories and draw their versions Martie and Frankenclone. We’ve actually had a rash of baby Martie sightings lately~ I love it when a book piques their imagination!Show Less
