The Weather Disaster by Matthew McElligott - ADVISABLE

McElligott, Matthew The Weather Disaster (Mad Scientist Academy).  PICTURE BOOK.  Crown (Random), 2016.  $18. 

The students at the Mad Scientist Academy are getting ready to learn about weather.  Dr. Cosmic has created the Cooling/Heating Airflow Operating System  or C.H.A.O.S machine which has gone haywire.  The students need to explore the school and figure out what is wrong and learn about weather at the same time.

I’m a fan of the Mad Scientists and Dr. Cosmic. The science is explained well but simply and the cast of monsters adds a nice fillip to a Miss Frizzle-like narrative.
