This is one science fair you’ll never forget!
When Mr. Farnsworth, the science-fair judge, declares that he loves zucchinis, the Killer Zucchini is smitten. As the judge makes his way through the exhibits alphabetically—A (antimatter), B (bionic limb), C (cloning)—the Killer Zucchini tries to show his affection. But when Mr. F gets to K and admits he likes to eat zucchini with ranch dressing, the Killer Zucchini gets steamed and attempts to exact his revenge on the snack-loving judge using the other science-fair projects as his means to an end.
Hilarious havoc ensues as the entire science fair is destroyed by his wrath.
Engaging backmatter provides the science behind the science fair entries created by the characters in the story.

What looks like an ABC book has a surprise inside. Mr. Farnsworth is the Science Fair judge. He has decided they need to arrange the projects in alphabetical order this year. When The Killer Zucchini hears Mr. Farnsworth say he love zucchini, he tries everything to get his attention. When he finds out it is to eat, he uses the other Science projects to get back at him. A humourous story with what looks to be unreal science projects. At the back of the book you will find descriptions of whether or not the project is possible, is already real and what the uses are for it. A fun read where students can learn a lot about Science. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
