My Mad Scientist Mummy introduces young readers to the fascinating world of lab science by giving a taste of working as a scientist in a cell-culture laboratory (cultivating bugs and cells in plastic dishes) through the eyes of a mother-daughter pair. The storyboard and illustrations are as faithful to the science as possible whilst including some subtle artistic flare to capture kids’ imaginations.
My aim is an educational yet delighting means to share my passion for science and microbes.
The story includes a theme song called I'm a Little Scientist
“A terrific book full of the wonder of science! If this doesn’t get your children interested in the joys of scientific discovery, then nothing will. My kids won’t put it down!”
