Booklist Review
In this sequel to Andros' series opener, Charlotte the Scientist Is Squished (2017), rabbit Charlotte is influenced to undertake another science experiment when her grandpa, as well as the other animals, all come down with a terrible tummyache. Summoning scientific skills she honed with her grandpa, she begins to collect medical histories and specimens, and, though her results are initially inconclusive, she doesn't give up. Even after a group of doctors don't take her seriously, she still perseveres and makes a surprising and useful discovery. Farley's comical cartoon illustrations of Charlotte, a rabbit in a lab coat and goggles, and the other forest creatures make this story of scientific inquiry and experimentation go down easy. Andros nicely emphasizes research methods, confidence, resilience, and the importance of curiosity to scientific vocations. A helpful list of science-related vocabulary terms in the glossary only adds to the STEAM appeal. A nice match for Mary GrandPré's Cleonardo: The Little Inventor (2016) or Andrea Beaty and David Roberts' Ada Twist, Scientist (2016).--Vivian Alvarez Copyright 2019 Booklist
