About the Author
Matthew McElligott is the author of many books for children, including Mad Scientist Academy: The Dinosaur Disaster, Even Monsters Need Haircuts, and the Benjamin Franklinstein series. Like a cumulonimbus cloud, he is associated with hot air, gray skies, and raining on parades. In spite of this, a beautiful woman named Christy married him and now helps him with all his books. You can visit him at matthewmcelligott.com and madscientistbooks.com.
Praise for Mad Scientist Academy: The Dinosaur Disaster “An informative but hair-raising tour of a rather-too-realistic dinosaur exhibit gives six new students a memorable first day at Mad Scientist Academy. . . . Mad fun.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred
“Like Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen’s Magic School Bus series (Scholastic), the use of a school setting, a quirky teacher, and wild hands-on learning situations provides an engaging blend of humor, adventure, and information.” —School Library Journal
