Ada Twist, Scientist
From the powerhouse author-illustrator team of New York Times bestsellers Iggy Peck, Architect and Rosie Revere, Engineer, comes another charming, witty picture book about believing in yourself and pursuing your passion. An inspiring S.T.E.M. story that revolves around a young girl with perseverance and a passion for science and discovery.
Meet Ada Twist, a young girl with a boundless imagination and curiosity. Why are there pointy things stuck to a rose? Why are there hairs growing inside your nose? Never afraid of failure, Ada embarks on a fact-finding mission and conducts scientific experiments to discover the source of a toe-curling smell that has been filling her house. Not every experiment leads to success though, and this time it has led to Ada's home being filled with even more stink!
Touching on themes of never giving up and problem solving, and inspired by real life makers such as Ada Lovelace and Marie Curie, Ada Twist, Scientist is a tale about diversity, women in science, and following our passions.
