The Science Fair From the Black Lagoon Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fifth trade release from the hugely popular book club series by Mike Thaler and Jared Lee. These fun-filled chapter books mix school, monsters, and common kid problems with hilarious results.

Mean Mrs. Green says that everyone has to invent something for the school science fair. But everyone would rather invent a way to get out of it!

Hubie can't decide on what to invent and all of his friends have already started their projects!

It comes down to a choice between cloning himself or building a laugh machine. But after a bad dream, he decides to build the machine. Will his innovation be enough to earn a passing grade, or will mean Mrs. Green have the last laugh?

A children's book editor saw one of these cartoons and encouraged Mike to write for children.

He is an award-winning author and illustrator and has been called “one of the most creative people in childrens literature.” Mike currently lives in Canby, Oregon.

Jared Lee has illustrated more than 100 books for young readers.
