THE YOUNG ADVENTURES

OF IVOR THE SCIENTIST

Dinosaurs, Robots & Aliens - What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

ARE YOU READY FOR ADVENTURE?

In these crazy and fun filled books we follow the adventures of an 11 year old wanna-be scientist called Ivor. Along with his trusty sidekick-cat, Einstein, he will hatch dinosaur eggs, attend a school filled with some very dangerous robots and meet aliens that have almost definitely arrived to attack his home town! Or have they?


In every book there is an underlying scientific theme,

helping the reader learn something without realising it:
Dinosaurs in Reykjavik - Geology.
The Robot Attack - Programming.
Visitors from Outer Space
 - Astronomy

Printed using Dyslexie - A font for people with dyslexia.
Illustrations by Ran Flygenring
Reading age: 6-12

A BOOK SERIES THAT WORKS LIKE A COMPUTER GAME!

The reader is the main character and decides what

happens by making a series of choices.


In every book the reader visits a different world,

whether it is the world of Icelandic folklore,

Grimm's fables, the Norse gods or what could possibly be the

scariest night of his life.

Different endings - some happy, others not so happy -

all depending on the reader's choice.

Illustrations by Evana Kisa.

Reading age: 8-15
