Overview

"At the Nukie Nuclear Power Plant, inside the nuclear reactor that sat beneath the big dome, a whole lot of fissioning was going on.

Where did it come from? Where did it go?"

A chubby lab rat and a pretty blue bird think they know and explain how a nuclear power plant really works! They speculate, exaggerate and blame everything they don't understand on their arch-enemy: a cat named Penelope.

"Anything that goes wrong for a bird or rat, or raises questions or eyebrows, I blame on a cat," declares the rat.

An entertaining look at how nuclear power plants work.

Written by Amelia Frahm, author of the award winning "Tickles Tabitha's Cancer-tankerous Mommy." Frahm is better known for advocating cancer awareness than nuclear power. However, in 1982, after college her career began at a nuclear power plant. One of her duties was implementing a school program about nuclear power.

Frahm spent last summer test-marketing her book and a school presentation about nuclear power to elementary students. She never imagined a nuclear emergency in Japan would once again make nuclear power plants front page news. When asked about it, she said, "whether it is cancer, nuclear power, or a cat named, Penelope, fear is fueled not by nuclear power, but a lack of knowledge and misinformation."
