Roy Doty has received many honors for his works. He is the recipient of two art directors' awards and has been voted Cartoonist Illustrator of the Year three times by the National Cartoonists Society. In addition to writing and illustrating his own books for children, he has illustrated more than one hundred books for other authors, including The Invention of Ordinary Things and You Can Speak Up in Class.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5 Up. Concoctions galore fill the pages of this science-experiment book. Clear instructions and easy-to-follow pen-and-ink illustrations, well marked for safety procedures, accompany each step of the activities that range from creating original soda flavors to analyzing commercial soft drinks. Zubrowski's instructions also help young scientists learn the importance of measuring accurately, keeping precise notes, keeping equipment clean, and practicing good lab management, even though the lab may be the kitchen. Scientific method is emphasized. Students and adults looking for new ideas for science-fair explorations will find new approaches here. This title contains less history and much more science than Stephen Tchudi's Soda Poppery (Scribners, 1986).?Kathryn Kosiorek, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Brooklyn, OH
