Why are there pointy things stuck to a rose? Why are there hairs growing inside your nose? When her house fills with a horrific, toe-curling smell, Ada knows it’s up to her to find the source. What would you do with a problem like this? Not afraid of failure, Ada embarks on a fact-finding mission and conducts scientific experiments, all in the name of discovery. But, this time, her experiments lead to even more stink and get her into trouble!

Touching on themes of never giving up and problem solving, Ada comes to learn that her questions might not always lead to answers, but rather to more questions. She may never find the source of the stink, but with a supportive family and the space to figure it out, she’ll be able to feed her curiosity in the ways a young scientist should.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: Las Aventuras De Huckleberry Finn (Dover Children's Evergreen Classics #Vol. 8)

by Mark Twain

"You don't know about me, without you have read a book by the name of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, but that ain't no matter. That book was made by Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth, mainly. There was things which he stretched, but mainly he told the truth." With these words, Huckleberry Finn draws us into the narrative that forever changed the course of American literature. Huck's view of Southern life in the years leading up to the Civil War, delivered with a country boy's accent, sparked a new realism in storytelling. Huck's voice is that of an outsider, fleeing the authority figures attempting to "sivilize" him. His companion, Jim, is a runaway slave whose bid for freedom is even more desperate. Their story — raising issues of prejudice and racism, slavery and freedom — faces questions no American novel had ever addressed. Loaded with hilarious escapades and unforgettable characters, this tale of adventures along the Mississippi River provides thought-provoking entertainment.
