Editorial Reviews

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, August 15, 2011:
"This is a most joyful and clever whimsy, the kind that lightens the heart and puts a shine on the day. Go ahead, break a few dishes in the washing machine, see the humor and enjoy this fine poke at every science fair that ever was."
