Picture books for everyone
Never Insult a Killer Zucchini by Elana Azose and Brandon Amancio
This book reads like a hybrid of an alphabet book and a graphic novel. Each entry is well supported by a humorous illustration. It could just be viewed as an odd alphabet novelty were it not for the glossary. The final pages briefly explain the real science behind each project that the protagonist and his zucchini encounter at the science fair. Older kids and parents will get a chuckle out of this book and younger kids will be entertained by the illustrations. A great choice for a family of science geeks.
