Goodness 13920589_10154234549335446_6195462618804421767_nonly 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‘.

13882124_10154234549470446_4103757599493502959_nA curious young girl from a very young age, Ada breaks the mould of a ‘normal’ toddler in more ways than one.

Not speaking until she turned three, but when she does… there’s no stopping her desire to know more.

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.

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.
