Description


Two major bestselling and award-winning picture book creators combine forces in this kid's eye account of a science fair gone horribly and hilariously awry!

Some kids are too smart for their own good...and maybe for everybody else's good. When an overly ambitious little girl builds a humongous robot for her science fair, she fully expects to win first place. What she doesn't expect is the chaos that follows! "I probably shouldn't have given it a superclaw, or a laser eye, or the power to control dogs' minds," she laments. Kids, don't try this at home!

"A must-have." —Kirkus Reviews

Don't miss the sequel, Oh No! Not Again!: (Or How I Built a Time Machine to Save History)

Praise For…


"Santat's brilliantly hued digital illustrations are the perfect foil for Barnett's almost-wordless tale of a science project gone awry.... In a world where technology progresses rapidly and consequences are often not anticipated, this lesson in 'I should have' is subtle, never preachy and always action-packed. A must-have."—Kirkus Reviews

"This graphic novel in picture-book form will appeal to the Captain Underpants set.... The dialogue balloons, dramatic perspectives, and graphic style bring a true comic-book sensibility to this funny story that's loaded with child appeal."—School Library Journal

"Santat and Barnett collaborate seamlessly on this slapstick adventure about a pigtailed, bespectacled science fair entrant trying unsuccessfully to control her prize-winning robot."—Publishers Weekly
