Professor McQuark and the Oojamaflip - Book Review

A brand new offering from Maverick Books is the rather quirky picture book, Professor McQuark and the Oojamaflip. It is written by first time author, Lou Treleaven and illustrated by Julia Patton.

The science fair is coming to town and Professor McQuark, who has a very big brain, wants to enter a fantastic invention so she can win first place. Her latest invention doesn't have a name so she decides to call it an oojamaflip.


There are lots of weird and wonderful inventions at the science fair such as a self-playing flute and a door with a zip but none of them are as weird and wonderful as the oojamaflip. A large crowd gathers round this noisy contraption to see what all the fuss is about...will Professor McQuark win the science fair first place prize?

The story is written in rhyme which is still our favourite kind of book to read together and it's a book that I can use for work to help the nursery children recognise rhyming words. Rhyming picture books are always really easy to read and I like to give the children a chance to guess what the rhyming words might be. This is a really fun book to read.

It is published by Maverick Books and available to buy now.

We received this book for the purposes of a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
