From Booklist

The second in a series called From the Highly Scientific Notebooks of Phineas L. MacGuire, this book picks up where the first (Phineas L. MacGuire . . . Erupts, 2006) left off. Mac, as our hero prefers to be called, still aspires to be the best fourth-grade scientist ever. He has turned from volcanoes, however, to mold, which sounds like an even less-auspicious project to the grown-ups in his life. Speaking in a chatty, wry tone, Mac relates his newest challenges, which include adults with an aversion to mold, a best friend who wants Mac to devote his time to classroom politics, and a babysitter he has dubbed "the Teenage Girl Space Alien from the Planet Pink." Full of amusing faux-scientific observations ("For every good thing that happens there is usually an equally bad thing that happens") as well as actual scientific facts, this lighthearted, illustrated chapter book should appeal to any young reader who can stand a little mold. For those whose affections for the stuff are more pronounced, several mold-related experiments conclude. Nolan, Abby

I bought this entire series of three books for my 9 year old son. We have flown through this one and now will read the next two. We both laughed and enjoyed the story.
