Professor McQuark and the Oojamaflip

Monkey’s ears pricked up as soon as I read out the title of the latest release from Maverick Arts Publishing.  Professor McQuark and the Oojamaflip is the first childrens picture book written by Lou Treleaven, and it’s published on Thursday 28th January.  It’s been a great hit here – Oojamaflip is a word Monkey hears me using all the time!

Professor McQuark and the Oojamaflip

We meet young Professor McQuark who is a rather prolific inventor.  She has this wonderful new invention, the Oojamaflip, and she wants to show it off at the Town’s Science Fair.  The story is told in rhyming text with wonderfully descriptive illustrations by Julia Patton.

When she arrives with her invention, it’s just too big to fit inside the hall, it’s larger than every other invention there.  She looks around, but nothing seems to compare to her Oojamaflip. But can she win the first prize?  Monkey loved the idea of having doughnuts on ropes that could be eaten whilst travelling around in this magical machine.

I won’t ruin the ending but it’s a lovely, funny read and Monkey’s top picture book pick this week.  I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link below where you can pre-order Professor McQuark and the Oojamaflip for £6.99.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
