Charlotte wants to be a serious scientist, but her family's rabbit hole is too crowded for her to properly conduct experiments. One of her siblings is always breaking her beakers or contaminating her samples. To find some peace and quiet, she constructs a ship and flies to the moon. However, she finds that even a serious scientist can become lonely. This book is not only funny and charming, it is also a great introduction to the scientific method for young readers. M. Crews (Up to Seven)
