Outstanding reviews for the series!

North Somerset Teachers’ Book Award

This is an excellent way of bringing science into the home and making it achievable for everyone. With ‘Awesome Egg Facts’ and ‘Awesome Science Facts’ scattered throughout, there is lots to learn whilst enjoying the story. Plenty of illustrations add to the fun! A great read!

Toppsta
What a cracking book (eggs-cuse the pun!!) – the perfect book to bridge from picture books. There’s plenty of fun illustrations between the pages and a simple fun story. What’s great though is how likeable the twins are – there’s no attempt to make them outrageously wacky – and how they are so interested in science and nature. The story really revolves around testing how strong eggs are using a variety of experiments (all of which are perfectly detailed so you can try them for yourselves at home). A perfect mix of fun, easy to read, storytelling and education (not that the kids will know that!)

Amazon Reader Review
Hilarious story of twins who decide to build a time machine. It contains scientific facts and experiments that you can do at home, preferably with an adult as it gets very messy. Can’t wait for the next instalment.

The School Librarian
There is a good balance between science and story. The story is packed with scientific facts, but perhaps more impressive are the examples of some key scientific methods and capabilities (close observation, investigating and problem solving, being systematic and discriminating) and scientific attitudes (curiosity, persistence, exploration, sustained thinking).Working together, the twins devise some ingenious and messy experiments.
