about this item

“Dr. Cosmic is plainly a colleague of Ms. Frizzle [from The Magic School Bus], and . . . fans of the Frizz will be dino-delighted. Mad fun.” —Kirkus Reviews  The series that’s been compared to the Magic School Bus (School Library Journal) and called “engaging and educational” (Booklist) is back! And now Dr. Cosmic’s class of clever monsters must tackle gravity, comets, and many moons.  When Dr. Cosmic’s class meets Commander Nova, the school astronomer, they know their next lesson will be out of this world!   With the help of Dr. Cosmic’s latest invention—a planetarium—the class must complete four challenges. Each time the planetarium shifts and the atmosphere changes, the students find themselves floating from planet to planet. They put their new magnetic antigravity belts and trusted handbooks to the test to figure out where in the solar system Dr. Cosmic’s invention has “sent” them—and how to land safely back on Earth.   Praise for Mad Scientist Academy: The Weather Disaster“With outlandish situations rendering scientific concepts memorable, McElligott has concocted a winning formula for learning as entertainment.” —Kirkus Reviews  “There’s enough fun here for anyone.” —School Library Journal  “No need for MSA kids to take a field trip: what could be more interesting than school?” —The Bulletin
