Excerpt from the book: "After every meal, Tag would run into the farting hut and do his magic while at the same time the farmers' machine would collect the methane energy from Tag and change it into electricity to power his family's house!"

Silly Science Series and the Power of Science --
Adventures of "Tag, the Farting Power Plant" is Maya and Martin's big debut. What began as a fun and silly daydream story to explain renewable energy and to include our dog, Tag, has now evolved into a series. Maya and Tag are joined by their friends, Gigi, the chihuahua, Spidey, the Scottish terrier, and BunBun, the bunny. Silly Science Series are fun and colorful picture storybooks that make reading them enjoyable and makes learning science easy for kids of all ages. Since Maya is one of the main characters, other young girls can see her as a strong and empowering role model that shows girls can enjoy science and be good at it!

"Tag, the Farting Power Plant" won the 2015 'Short Story for Children' award at the Marin County Fair in California.
