A “PBS KIDS” beginning chapter book with an engaging story told in four short chapters… Emerging readers will enjoy humorous, cartoonlike illustrations… A quirky sense of humor and simple plot will appeal to most new readers and with timely subjects such as green energy, DIY, and self-destructing pants, it’s a fun read. A science experiment that is easy and safe to do without parental help is included at the end of the book. This goofy book will be popular.
