by Jane Clarke & Illustrated by James Brown

Energetic twins Al and Lottie are always one step away from TROUBLE…

Al loves experimenting and this time he is intent on inventing a time machine to take his family back to meet their Great Grandpa Boffin. A time machine would also be really useful to get him out of trouble! A young scientist who never gives up, Al is surprised to find that his experiments often have the most unexpected (and MESSY) consequences.

Al’s Awesome Science is perfect for children who are becoming confident readers and want to progress to  chapter books. A fun and hilarious page turning plot, accompanied by lots of black and white pictures to pore over and enjoy. Each title includes, fun and at times messy, step-by-step science experiments, integrated in comic book form to accompany the text.
