The Magic School Bus Gets Baked in a Cake: A Book About Kitchen Chemistry (Magic School Bus Movie Tie-Ins)
|Cooking With F(r)izz|
The bus is on the fritz (or should it be spelled "frizz?."） This is one field trip the kids really WANT to go on. They`re trying to surprise their surprising teacher with a birthday party and need to get to the bakery for the cake. While they do reach their destination, the unstable bus suddenly shrinks, passengers and all, to the size of a moth. They must dodge the baker`s fly swatter as well as their teacher`s keen eyes, while using kitchen chemistry to get the job done. While we miss the volume of information and mini "reports" of the original series, this is still alot of fun. My kids gained a new respect for cooking: it is chemistry, but you can eat the results! The baking soda experiment at the back is a rainy day standby at our house: my boys adore the fizz from the Frizz.
