Synopsis

Welcome back to Mad Scientist Academy! Dr. Cosmic’s class of clever monsters must face down snow, floods, and a dangerous thunderstorm as freak weather conditions threaten the school in this second book of the series.
 
Dr. Cosmic can’t wait to introduce the students to his latest invention, the CHAOS machine, designed to keep the school at the right temperature for learning. But when the machine starts to malfunction, causing extreme weather conditions, the students must use their upgraded handbooks to stop CHAOS before it destroys the entire school!
 
Join Dr. Cosmic’s clever class of monsters as they solve the greatest challenges in science, in this blend of adventure and exploration, perfect for Common Core and STEM.
 

Praise for Mad Scientist Academy: The Dinosaur Disaster

“An informative but hair-raising tour of a rather-too-realistic dinosaur exhibit gives six new students a memorable first day at Mad Scientist Academy. . . . Mad fun.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred

“Like Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen’s Magic School Bus series (Scholastic), the use of a school setting, a quirky teacher, and wild hands-on learning situations provides an engaging blend of humor, adventure, and information.” —School Library Journal

Summer 2015 Kids’ Indie Next List

“One of Summer’s Must-Read Children’s Books.” —Bookish.com
