Ada Twist, Scientist Kindle Edition
Audio CD, Audiobook, CD, Unabridged
"A smart, funny, and gorgeously designed picture book that offers a brilliant role-model for kids in Ada." Buzzfeed 'Ada Marie Twist is a true little rebel and, like the pioneering scientists she is named after (Marie Curie and Ada Lovelace), a fantastic feminist role model.' Books for Keeps
'Written in playful rhyming verse, it's joyfully illustrated by the genius of David Roberts.' Huffington Post
'David Roberts provides plenty of visual humour as a backdrop to this kick-ass story of a young girl with a determined spirit and a thirst for knowledge. There aren't many storybooks around for little future scientists, but this is the book that I wanted to show my nieces so that they could learn that, whatever their ambitions, curiosity can lead them forward.' Lounge Books
'Ada Twist, Scientist is the worthy winner of the KSl category in this year's Teach Primary New Children's Fiction Awards, featuring Andrea Beatty's fizzy and joyful rhyming narrative, and an opportunity for keen-eyed youngsters to spot evidence cleverly placed in David Roberts' illustrations that even Ada herself has yet to discover.' --Teach Primary magazine
"The endlessly inquisitive heroine of this brilliant picture book seeks to discover the answers to these questions and more! The rollicking rhyming text is as energetic as Ada herself, and the illustrations are packed with ingeniously entertaining detail courtesy of none other than long-time friend of Scoop, David Roberts." Scoop
'Ada Twist, Scientist is the tale of a persistently curious young girl in this brilliant picture book, written by Andrea Beaty and illustrated by David Roberts [...] This is definitely one of my favourite children's books of 2016. I think you'll be hard pressed to find a more satisfying example of a picture book to enjoy' --Sam Hearn, author
'This is a beautifully illustrated rhyming story about a family learning to support a child's curiosity. Ada is a likeable character who has all the traits of a great scientist. The book responds well to the call for greater representation of girls and diversity in STEM subjects and industries (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Indeed Andrea Beaty says she took her inspiration from Ada Lovelace, the mathematician and very first computer programmer, and Marie Curie, who discovered the elements polonium and radium, whose work led to the invention of X-rays. The book is fun to read and should inspire children to follow their passions.' The English Association '
'Ada Twist is a stereotype-smashing tale which celebrates the power of curiosity and scientific enquiry.' --The Little Rebels Children's Book Award --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

We were driving through Sheffield city center the other day and she said 'wow' and pointed out a bizarre/modern building - I mentioned that an architect will have designed what the building looks like - she said 'I know mummy like iggy peck' I said that's correct and said that an engineer then helps to design how the building can be put together to meet the architects expectations and she said I know mummy like Rosie revere. Brilliant!
Got it for our daughter and she's loved it and we believe this amongst other things will help plant the seed of confidence and love for science! We need more books like this!!!
