Product description

A rhyming bestseller that celebrates science. Meet bright spark Ada, whose favourite word is ‘why’! All her life, Ada has been curious. Why are there pointy things stuck to a rose? Why do hairs grow in your nose? But Ada isn’t content with saying ‘why’. She wants to find out the answers – using science! Her fact-finding missions and cool experiments turn up all kinds of discoveries. But when a horrible smell fills the house and Ada tries to find out what it is, she learns the first rule of scientific success: daring to fail and try again!

  • Winner of the Little Rebels and Teach Primary awards
  • An inspirational picture book that celebrates science
  • Ada is a wonderfully bright and determined heroine
  • Lovely colour pictures by the Dirty Bertie illustrator
