Synopsis: When Olga crosses paths with a weird creature and becomes the first kid to discover the species olgamus ridiculus, she is ecstatic! What does an olgamus eat? How does it poop? Why does its burp sound like the word rubber? With her trusty observation notebook and the help of a librarian, a shopkeeper, and some friends, Olga sets out to do science—learning the facts about her smelly, almost-furry pal and searching for him when he goes missing. The scientific method is the best way to discover anything!

Review: This is going to be a great one for those Wimpy Kid/Dork Diary fans! I love that Olga is science-y. She loves all things animals and when she find an unknown species she tries to figure out what he is! Olga is a tween/early teen but she reads a bit younger. 6th/7th MAY like it but I think it’ll be better in the hands of 4th/5th graders. The only thing I don’t like at all is that the mean girls read a fashion magazine called TWERP GIRLS. That name is just..no. The mean girls do show they’re not all that mean and Olga does kind of want to read the magazine, but the name TWERP GIRLS just bothered me. Other than that, I found this one an extremely fun and funny read and think it’ll be a big hit with our patrons. (FYI, it doesn’t come out until end of March!)
