Nashua - Marty Kelley with his lastest creation "Experiment #256"

MARTY KELLEY once again delivers a snort out loud book, EXPERIMENT #265.

Ian loves science experiments and for his newest one (number 256) he’s making a jet pack for his dog, Wilbur! What could go wrong?

As he gets to work on his new project, he realizes that what may seem like a good idea on paper, is a lot more difficult to execute. What might happen if he forgets to add a few components, for example the brakes? Young Ian quickly realizes he has his hands full as he tries to keep up with airborne Wilbur.

This STEM-focused book will encourage young scientists to experiment and make mistakes along the way. The title is perfect for libraries or school lessons involving makers spaces. Written in the format of experimental notes, this book will have kids laughing and begging to make their own jet packs (just hide your pets first!)

Marty Kelley is an author and illustrator of children’s books but has, in the past, been a second-grade teacher, a baker, a cartoonist, a newspaper art director, and (among other things) a drummer in a heavy metal band.
