This is a great addition to the Phineas MacGuire series and a big recommend to any 2nd through 4th grader, especially those with an interest in science and a love of all things gross.
Ever resourceful, Mac found some opportunities to work for pay, and he even went so far as to write an essay for a scholarship competition. Would it be enough to finance the trip?
With an endearing character like Phineas MacGuire at the helm and important lessons in economics about earning and saving money, this book has much to offer. Children starting to read full-length chapter books will undoubtedly appreciate the fast-moving plot, humor, and tips in conducting interesting scientific experiments.
