A USA Today Bestseller
The creators of the New York Times bestselling picture books Rosie Revere, Engineer and Iggy Peck, Architect are back with a story about the power of curiosity in the hands of a child who is on a mission to use science to understand her world. Ada Twist, Scientist, from powerhouse team Andrea Beaty and David Roberts, is a celebration of STEM, perseverance, and passion.
Like her classmates, builder Iggy and inventor Rosie, scientist Ada, a character of color, has a boundless imagination and has always been hopelessly curious. Why are there pointy things stuck to a rose? Why are there hairs growing inside your nose? When her house fills with a horrific, toe-curling smell, Ada knows it’s up to her to find the source. What would you do with a problem like this? Not afraid of failure, Ada embarks on a fact-finding mission and conducts scientific experiments, all in the name of discovery. But, this time, her experiments lead to even more stink and get her into trouble!
Inspired by real-life makers such as Ada Lovelace and Marie Curie, Ada Twist, Scientist champions girl power and women scientists, and brings welcome diversity to picture books about girls in science. Touching on themes of never giving up and problem solving, Ada comes to learn that her questions might not always lead to answers, but rather to more questions. She may never find the source of the stink, but with a supportive family and the space to figure it out, she’ll be able to feed her curiosity in the ways a young scientist should.
Iggy Peck and Rosie Revere have earned their places among the most beloved children’s characters, and they have inspired countless kids and adults to follow their dreams and passions. Now in her own charming and witty picture book, determined Ada Twist, with her boundless curiosity for science and love of the question “Why?,” is destined to join these two favorites. The book is the perfect tool to remind both young girls and women that they have the intelligence and perseverance to achieve their dreams.

Still giving this book a 4 because I like Beaty's poetic style, but the story wasn't as thought out in this one.

It's a clever concept that I really admire, but after a while of the forced rhymes I did tire.

A great book that I read with my daughter. I love how Ada's parents are very supportive of her creativity and understand the need to be patient and encourage. I purchased this book for my daughter because she likes to experiment, question and explore everything around her. The added perk, my daug...

I am happy about this book overall. Ada twist is a curios young toddler, that is constantly questioning, wondering and learning about the world around her. A book about a girl with scientific affiliation (and a black one too if you check out the illustrations) is more of what we need for our youn...

Ada Twist is such a smart, curious, determined character - I adore her! A scientist from the start, Ada is constantly wondering about and questioning the world around her. Who? What? Why? Where? When? Her sense of wonder is infectious. A fantastic addition to Beaty & Roberts' growing series.

Funny, inspiring and beautifully illustrated:
I love the humor, rhymes and Ada's parents' efforts to accommodate and to encourage their hyperactive and extremely curious daughter's interests and talents:
They watched their young daughter and sighed as they did.
What would they do with this curious k...

I loved Ada Twist, Scientist and my four-year-old son enjoyed it, too. We are big Iggy Peck, Architect fans here and my son shares characteristics of both Iggy (loves to build) and Ada (loves to ask questions and find out "why?" and "how?") I appreciated many nuances he is too little to understan...
