“Highly original, imaginative and thrilling.”
“The best illustrated children’s book of 2014, hands down.”
“An old, old monster in a supposedly safe environment, one familiar to all. A walk in the park will never be the same again.”
“A hit! A brave and brilliant hit! An immediate children’s classic.”
The air is misty, bright and cool, the morning Michael walks to school.
At the boundary of the park he waits, nervously he hesitates.
The day warms up, the sun shines down and Mike walks on, into town.
Gnarly branches, crook and tight, curl around the ghostly light.
Suddenly he freezes, weak at the knees, what is that swimming beneath the trees?
Terrifying, funny, thrilling! This new, beautifully illustrated children’s book is available in paperback and digital versions. The Kindle version includes links to exclusive interactive content.

Enjoy, and remember, it’s just a story.
Designed to encourage kids’ natural love of science from an early age, this book promotes scientific observation, exploration, and analysis in a way that little kids can get excited about–through do-it-yourself experiments! Each chapter introduces a different branch of science, including biology, chemistry, and physics through kid-friendly experiments–all of which are linked to science curriculum requirements for grades K through 3.
Each experiment includes an introductory question, complete materials list, step-by-step instructions, and Carmelo’s characteristic kid-tested jokes–and is accompanied by full-color illustrations. The experiments utilize common materials typically found around the house. A little bit of help from a grown-up is recommended, and encourages family science time.
