Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2—Ada Marie Twist is an inquisitive African American second grader and a born scientist. She possesses a keen yet peculiar need to question everything she encounters, whether it be a tick-tocking clock, a pointy-stemmed rose, or the hairs in her dad's nose. Ada's parents and her teacher, Miss Greer, have their hands full as the child's science experiments wreak day-to-day havoc. On the first day of spring, the title character is tinkering outside her home when she notices an unpleasant odor. She sets out to discover what might have caused it. Beaty shows Ada using the scientific method in developing hypotheses in her smelly pursuit. The little girl demonstrates trial and error in her endeavors, while appreciating her family's full support. In one experiment, she douses fragrances on her cat and then attempts to place the feline in the washing machine. Her parents, startled by her actions, send her to the Thinking Chair, where she starts to reflect on the art of questioning by writing her thoughts on the wall—now the Great Thinking Hall. Ada shines on each page as a young scientist, like her cohorts in the author's charming series. The rhyming text playfully complements the cartoon illustrations, drawing readers into the narrative. VERDICT A winner for storytime reading and for young children interested in STEM activities. Pair with science nonfiction for an interesting elementary cross-curricular project.—Krista Welz, North Bergen High School, NJ

"Beaty delightfully advocates for girls in science in her now-trademark crisply rhyming text."―Kirkus

"Use this book to jumpstart conversations about scientists, girl scientists, gender roles, forming hypotheses, giftedness and childhood genius, and individual creativity. Or just use it for laughs on a lazy school day afternoon."―NY Journal of Books

"A winner for storytime reading and for young children interested in STEM activities."―School Library Journal

"Young Ada Twist and her nonstop intellect might just encourage readers to blaze trails of their own."―Booklist Online

The characters in Andrea's humorous picture books and novels are smart, funny, and unapologetic in their passion. They are doers. Curiosity, creativity, innovation and persistence are recurring themes in her work.

From architecture-obsessed IGGY PECK, ARCHITECT to the inventive ROSIE REVERE, ENGINEER to the irrepressible magician in training, Robbie Darko (DORKO THE MAGNIFICENT). And then there is the fiercely funny Ted (DOCTOR TED, FIREFIGHTER TED, ARTIST TED) who can't be stopped when he puts his mind to something.

5.0 out of 5 stars We love Ada Twist
By Rexius on March 18, 2017
My kids and I LOVE love loooove this book! It is about a girl who didn't say a word until she was three -likely because she was taking it all in and mastering it on her own. At least that's our theory. She is really curious, adventurous, and is remarkably tenacious; determined to solve the puzzles and mysterious of life around her.

My kids favorite part (other than her great escape at 3) is the part where she starts to put the cat in the washer to freshen it up because it stinks. LOL... _hilarious_ in how wrong they know that is! & how much THEY'D like to try it out to see what would happen.....what kind of reaction will THEIR parents have?! Mmmhmmm.

Ada's parents are calm and while they discuss what should be done, Ada's natural curiosity gets her into another mess. I liked how throughout the book, her family allowed her the freedom to be true to interests and kept calm and found creative ways to honor her intense personality that worked for them all.
