Fans of Ada Twist, Scientist, will want to join Dr. Cosmic's class of clever monsters as they tackle gravity, comets, and many moons in the third book of the Mad Scientist Academy series.
Matthew McElligott is the author of many books for children including the Mad Scientist Academy series, Even Monsters Need Haircuts, and the Benjamin Franklinstein series.
