How To Tame A Human Tornado
Friday the thirteenth was totally normal. By ‘normal’, I mean that my good-for-nothing brother was absolutely not turned into a zebra while I was being suffocated by a million frogs. There were no levitation pills, time-freezing guns or robot octopuses, and I certainly didn’t turn my classmate into a human tornado that destroyed most of the town. That would be preposterous.
No, it was just another ‘normal’ day with my best friend Nate â€“ who just happens to be a genius.
The third volume of The Genius Factor series features black and white illustrations from film talentÂ Thierry Lafontaine. The UK edition is illustrated byÂ Katie Abey.
“What makes How To Tame a Human Tornado succeed is the pace of the book, combined with its creativity. Seemingly every three pages theyâ€™re presented with an absurd, impossible situation, like their family members turning into zebras, being chased by rubber robots or encountering so many toads that theyâ€™re being buried. They handle each of these situations and more with wit, friendship and STEM based science that readers are left wondering whatâ€™s possible and impossible.” â€“Â Daddy Mojo on HOW TO TAME A HUMAN TORNADO
