The second book in the Questioneers series, Ada Twist and the Perilous Pants is as wonderful as expected. When Ada’s friend’s uncle floats away in his helium pants, Ada and her friends must use their math skills to save the day by bringing him back to earth. Ada and the other Questioneers, Iggy Peck and Rosie Revere, are an inspiration for 6-year-olds and up who dream about becoming scientists and engineers. Introducing math and science in a hilarious way, this series is great for encouraging young minds to question the world around them. Books like this series are creating a new generation of thinkers!
