Average rating

5 out 5

Matilda loves science and inventing. Her heroes are Marie Curie, Leonardo da Vinci and Thomas Edison, and one day she wants to be a famous inventor herself. So when she doesn’t win the school science fair, she’s devastated – especially as the judges didn’t believe she'd come up with her entry on her own. Because she's a girl. When Matilda shares her woes with her Grandma Joss, she's astonished to learn her grandma was once a scientist herself – an astrophysicist, who discovered her very own planet. Trouble is, Grandma Joss was also overlooked – her boss, Professor Smocks, stole her discovery for himself. And he's about to be presented with a Nobel Prize.

I loved this book! It's really good. The story is about a girl called Matilda, who, because she is a girl, does not get picked for a science competition. One day she finds out that her granny Joss discovered a planet but one of her work colleagues stole all her work. The story follows Matilda and Granny Joss to the Nobel Prize ceremony.

Amazing science book

I think other children should read this book as it is full of adventure, it has lots of invention ideas, and shows what can really happen if you put your mind to it
