About the Book

BOOM! SNAP! WHIZ! ZAP! The Magnificent Makers series is filled with science, adventure, and characters that readers will love! A modern-day Magic School Bus for chapter book readers!

This book includes two science activities kids can do at home! These quick educational activities (30 minutes or less) use items you probably already have on hand!


Violet and Pablo are best friends who love science! So when they discover a riddle that opens a magic portal in the Science Space at school, they can't wait to check it out! Along with their new classmate, Deepak, the friends discover a magical makerspace called the Maker Maze. It's a laboratory full of robots, 3D printers, an antigravity chamber, and more. Doors line the walls of the makerspace, with a new science adventure waiting behind each one.

With the help of a hilarious and odd scientist, the Magnificent Makers embark on out-of-this-world adventures that help them master the science concepts they are learning in school. This series will cover several scientific topics (at an age-appropriate level) ranging from human biology to ecology, while also exploring issues such as managing failure, teamwork, courage, and jealousy.

Author Bio

Theanne Griffith can't get you into the Maker Maze (only Dr. Crisp can do that), but she can tell you a lot of cool science facts. She is a brain scientist by day (no, she's not a zombie) and a storyteller by night. She loves tinkering in the lab as much as she loves writing children's books. She lives in New Jersey with her family and three cats. Visit her online at theannegriffith.com or on Twitter at @doctheagrif.

Reggie Brown is a children's book illustrator with a passion for bringing stories with diverse characters to life. When he is not drawing, he is either diving into the latest science fiction, watching Star Wars, or reading a comic book. Reggie was born in the Philippines and lives in sunny San Diego with his wife and dog. Visit him online at trendingcreativedesign.com.
