11 Experiments That Failed is a perfect book for anyone who enjoyed Jenny Offill’s 17 Things I’m Not Allowed to Do Anymore. The book itself is absolutely hilarious, and Nancy Carpenter’s illustrations are complex and still manage to depict exactly what’s going on.
Furthermore, this may be just the introduction to the scientific method that teachers have always wanted. I foresee this book encouraging lots of kids to try their own experiments. Hopefully, their results will be better than those in this book!
