When the power goes out at home, young scientist Curious McCarthy hypothesizes that when there is no electricity at the house, one of the seven McCarthy kids will get in trouble. The power comes back of before the hypothesis is proven true, but Curious's interest in electricity has been sparked. Using funny footnotes, Curious shares her observations of school and home in a crazy story featuring electrons, arm wrestling, cooties, and batteries made out of fruit! A glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts provide reading support, while a related science experiment adds to the fun.
