Mad Scientist Academy: The Dinosaur Disaster

by Matthew McElligott

Enroll in Dr. Cosmic’s class of clever monsters at the Mad Scientist Academy as they solve the greatest challenges in science, in this perfect blend of adventure and exploration that follows in the footsteps of The Magic School Bus–reinvented for the new millennium.

Dr. Cosmic can’t wait to start the new school year. As his new class arrives, he proudly shows them his summer project–a dinosaur exhibit with robotic dinosaurs that replicate all life systems and functions. But when the robots get switched from safe to live mode, the dinosaurs run amok, with exciting and scary consequences. The students have to learn enough about these ancient reptiles to outsmart them and save the exhibit, Dr. Cosmic, and themselves.
