“The inquisitive young scientist in this picture book is part Eloise, part Ms. Frizzle. She tests each of her hypotheses -- such as that ketchup and snow are the only food groups a kid needs -- with pure scientific standards. Fantastic illustrations demonstrate the scientific method and show the reader what goes on behind the scenes, for example, when you try to send a bottle to the ocean by flushing it down the toilet. This book had me giggling at every page.”
