I have to admit that I didn’t think I would like this book as much as I did! The two characters are a very funny chicken and a goat. The goat wants to use science to figure out a way across the moat, while the chicken thinks the drawbridge would be the better option. In a fun way, this book teaches about Archimedes’ principal relating to buoyancy. I found some of the situations and illustrations to be laugh out loud funny!!
