“Professor McQuark, is a fantastic rolemodel for little girls (and boys) because she’s a very clever and very creative scientist. There are so many picture books featuring princesses, ballerinas and fashionistas that it’s fabulous to see a book encouraging girls to become inventors and (slightly mad !) scientists.

I thought it had a bit of a Cat In The Hat vibe going on, both in terms of the slick rhymes and the entertaining drawings. It’s fun, it’s quirky and it promotes science to girls. It also led on to lots of fun discussions and crafting sessions afterwards, deciding what crazy inventions we could think of and design – what more could you ask for in a picture book?”
