Science Fair Day

by Lynn Plourde
Illustrated by Thor Wickstrom
Dutton Children’s Books, 2008

It was Science Fair Day. 
Everyone in Mrs. Shepherd’s class was loaded down with
posters and potions,
gizmos and gadgets,
chemicals and contraptions.
All the students were eager, excited and anxious, especially . . .

Ima Kindanozee.

Ima liked to know anything and everything going on around her. 
She always asked plenty of questions.
And the perfect day to ask questions was Science Fair Day.

Or maybe Science Fair Day is NOT the perfect day to ask questions. When Ima asks questions about Josephina’s rocket project, she sends it flying through the air, out the classroom window, and crashing into a tree. Dewey’s dinosaur project crashes to the floor when Ima questions, “What’s this bone connected to?” What happens when she asks questions about Dewey’s and Maybella’s projects? And what about her own project? Mrs. Shepherd is only able to stall Principal Helm for so long before the determined administrator comes in to judge all of Mrs. Shepherd’s students’ projects. Could it be they are the only class that doesn’t have any winning projects–thanks to Ima?
