We're STEMing The Way With Our New Picture Book Titles
We are in for another exciting year here at Maverick, with a whole new range of picture books. Following the success of Alison Donald’s, The Spacesuit, we are following… suit with three brand new narrative non-fiction titles; Mister T.V., A Super Sticky Mistake and a fantastic sciencey, rhymey guide to Rainbows titled Why?

A Super Sticky Mistake – Everyone makes mistakes and Harry Coover is no different. A brilliant scientist, Harry keeps making the same extra-sticky mistake but then he begins to wonder whether its not such a mistake after all…
Why? – Dad is quite confident in explaining how a rainbow is made to his curious daughter, but when she keeps repeating ‘why?’ his explanation spirals deep into sciencey lingo that has his brow sweating!
