Fourfields Community Primary School (Moles Class)

A really funny story about a scientist, her assistant and her guinea-pig named Chip. The scientist leaves her assistant alone in the labortory. He starts using the potion to experiement on the guinea-pig. There are all sorts of strange reactions and in the end everything back fires on the assistant. A light hearted and enjoyable story. Liked by nearly all the of the Moles class.

Grab your mouse and buy this wonderful book! Now!

This is a *delightful* book that I wish I'd had when I was a kid. The story is a little jewel--funny and simply perfect as it is. And the *pictures*! Lord, the pictures are wonderful. One could look at them for hours--a child could look at them throughout childhood--and be endlessly delighted by the details, the colors, the pure charm. Even the endpapers of the book, with their pictures of Professor Puffendorf's inventions, are worth looking at for a long while. Can't wait for tomorrow night's bedtime reading!
