“Ada Twist, Scientist”

With fabulous illustrations by David Roberts, “Ada Twist, Scientist” is a new book from the duo that wrote “Rosie Revere, Engineer” and “Iggy Peck, Architect.” The main character is based in part on the famous female scientists Ada Lovelace and Marie Curie. The story focuses on a child who uses her curiosity and love of science in order to understand the world around her. Asking her parents “why,” the book celebrates children who ask questions to learn how the world works and how hard work gets results! Available wherever books are sold.
