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.

German Wording:
Gewinner 2015 in der Kategorie "Kurzgeschichte für Kinder" auf der Marin County Messe, Kalifornien, "Tag, das pubsende Kraftwerk" ist der erste Band in einer Bücherserie (bilingual in Spanisch), die mit Spaß und Blödsinn naturwissenschaftliche Themen an Kinder jeden Alters vermittelt. Farbige Bilder als auch kreative und lustige Tierfiguren, mit denen wir uns alle identifizieren können, sorgen dafür, dass die Silly Science Series seine Leser direkt in ihren Bann schlägt, ganz anders als die meisten naturwissenschaftlichen Bücher. Maya ist die schlaue, junge Entdeckerin, die Wissenschaft liebt und mit deren Hilfe sie die Probleme löst, in die sie und ihre Freunde geraten.
.....(Erhältlich auf Deutsch, Schwedisch, Englisch und Spanisch.)
