Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3–5—Nine-year-old Scab McNally has an overactive imagination and is on a mission, which is a worrisome combination. He enjoys dabbling in his homemade science lab in his basement and is ecstatic when he develops a particularly obnoxious-smelling sister repellent. Scab and his "smart times ten" twin do not get along at all, hence the need for the repellent. When Isabelle refuses to help him convince their parents to get a dog, he decides to sell his repellent to his friends; with the money, he plans to buy a puppy on his own. Unfortunately, his plans hit a bump when he and his best friend have an argument and his latest batch of repellent, which is in his backpack, is accidentally squashed. At the same time Isabelle has decided to help Scab—until she learns why kids have been teasing her at school. Scab is a likable, free-thinking boy who is full of charm and humor. He leaps before he thinks and that gets him into more trouble than he can handle. His many tips, diagrams, and facts scattered throughout are entertaining, as are the numerous comical black-and-white illustrations. This is the first book in a series, and kids are sure to be wondering what kind of trouble Scab will brew in his lab next.—Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN

From Booklist

Always in trouble, Scab McNally flicks gooey snotballs, arm-farts the national anthem in school assembly, eats crunchy bugs in class, and makes wicked comments about his fourth-grade teachers’ warts, spit, and bad breath. He does have a soft side: his dream is to have “a dog to love, a dog to love him back.” He is saving to buy a pet by selling his special stinky spray (don’t ask what it is made of), which he calls “sister-repellent,” named in honor of his brilliant twin, Isabelle. Disaster strikes when the spray spills in the classroom. The first in a new series, Secrets of a Lab Rat, this will grab elementary-school boys with the uproarious, yucky details and irreverent view of authority, as well as the mushy reconciliation, when his sister helps Scab get his dog. The sibling spats are funny, as are the occasional cartoons that extend the outrageous scenes. Grades 2-5. --Hazel Rochman --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Secrets of a Lab Rat is the coolest book I've read this year. It's about a boy named Scab who wants a dog more than anything. He comes up with a funny way to get one, too. Sure, he likes gross things like arm farting and burping but that's just a small part of the story. The real story is how he has to figure out how to fix things with his sister after he messes up. I've already read it twice!

This is the best laugh out loud book. My teacher has read it to the class. This is about a boy nicknamed Scab that invents things. He made a sister repellent spray. He adds one more ingredient that makes it gross. Something horrible happens in school while he is in a class, but you have to read it to find out.

This is my favorite book this year. It's just as funny as Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Probably funnier. This is a good book for boys. Scab is always getting in trouble. The pictures are great, too. If you get this book for a boy he won't be disappointed that's for sure.

My ten-year old Grandson loved this book (which I sent directly to him from Amazon). He gave it a rave and shared it with friends. I doesn't get any better than this from a kid!

I loved this book because I could see myself in it. It is about an immature, irresponsible boy who wants a dog. His sister who is "smart times ten" and she gets "embarrassed by ten" be Scab's new invention. Scan is not his rea name, he hates his real name and when he was at camp he got a ton of mosquito botes, which means a ton of scabs. His best friend, Doyle called him Scab and the nickname stuck. Anyway he created a sister repellent spray called Isabelle's smell, and Louis, who is usually picking on someone smaller than him is singing, "Hey, hey, what's that small?!" The other kids shout back, "Hey, hey it's Isabelle!" Scab is wanting his sister to ask for a dog. Since she is responsible, there's a large chance Scab will get a dog. He has to make up for Isabelle's Smell now, hoping he'll get a fury friend. I loved this laugh out loud novel. In my opinion I LOVED IT!

I like this book. It's about a boy named Scab who makes experiments. So Scab was working on an Isabelle Smell. Isabelle is his sister. THen one day when Doyle and Scab were fighting about a book, Scab let go and that Isabelle Smell was in Scab's backpack. Doyle hit is and the smell spread across the whole fourth grade and Isabelle got teased and she didn't go to school that much. Isabelle got friends and she was happy. If you want to know the rest, check out Secrets of a Lab Rat. I like the book because he teases his sister and when he made the Isabelle Smell. Oh, and don't smell it!

He sells it when he makes enough nut has to share it when he makes enough but has to share the money with his friend. If you want to know the rest please read the book.
