Ada Twist and the Perilous Pants (Book #2 of The Questioneers Series) Out Now + Reader Giveaway

We can’t get enough good books in our house! Not only do we regularly bring home stacks of books from the library, but we also have our own collection of favorites. My kids love to read books over and over and pass them down to younger siblings. They make a great birthday presents too!

My 8-year-old is an avid reader who is always on the lookout for new reading material, so I was thrilled to get a peek at Ada Twist and the Perilous Pants, the second book in The Questioneers series, recommended for ages 6-9. (She loved the first book, Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters!)

Before we even got our book in the mail, Chrysa’s 10-year-old nephew saw her copy, grabbed it and devoured the first half while sitting on the arm of the couch. It’s pretty attention-grabbing!

In this new book, Ada Twist is the queen of questions. Like, why does hot coffee smell stronger than cold? What kind of birds live in her backyard? And, especially, why does her brother Arthur get so cranky when she borrows his stuff for experiments?

But Ada’s questions really come in handy when her friend Rosie Revere needs help. Rosie’s Uncle Ned has gotten carried away in his famous helium pants, and Ada needs some answers—fast!

How high can Uncle Ned float? Will he fly off into outer space? And, most important, how can they get him down? With the help of her fellow Questioneers Iggy Peck and Rosie Revere, her brother Arthur, and some new friends, Ada Twist is ready to save the day!

Be sure to enter our reader giveaway for a chance to win a hardcover copy of Ada Twist and the Perilous Pants along with Ada Twist’s Big Project Book for Stellar Scientists!
