“I love books which inspire this amount of thinking in children and also ones which encourage them to be active or take an interest in a subject like science.”  ThisDayILove

 “The main character, Professor McQuark, is a fantastic role model for little girls.  It’s fun, it’s quirky and it promotes science to girls. It also led on to lots of fun discussions and crafting sessions afterwards, deciding what crazy inventions we could think of and design – what more could you ask for in a picture book?”  Madhouse Family Reviews
“Brilliantly entertaining gem of a read. The books just buzzes with energy and brims over with ideas providing lots of inspirations for young minds…  Lovely to see a female inventor in a story this book will have a real pride of place in my school library.”  Book Lover Jo
