Goodness only knows how Andrea Beaty and David Roberts do it!
After the roaring success of Rosie Revere, Engineer and Iggy Peck, Architect, they’ve only gone and done it again with the highly anticipated ‘Ada Twist, Scientist‘.
Not speaking until she turned three, but when she does… there’s no stopping her desire to know more.
A jaunty rhythmic read, this won’t fail to please even the youngest audience. Coupled with David Roberts’ stylishly impeccable characterisation and loveable protagonists, there’s everything to love about Ada.
Championing strong female leads and embracing women in science, this refreshingly welcome diverse character encompasses all that can be great about inquisitive and persistent minds everywhere.
Ada’s experimentation leads to a horrific stench and even though she may not find the root cause, she isn’t afraid to set about trying, nor is she afraid of failure. A life lesson to be learned by all of us and undoubtedly on more than one occasion.
Another aspirational story from this heavyweight picture book duo and one that is crying out to be read by children everywhere. Get it on your wish lists.
