Professor Kompressor is an inventor. He is excellent at inventing, but the inventions are not always excellent.
The first book in the series about Professor Kompressor, an ever-so-slightly misguided inventor, contains 12 entertaining episodes from the Professor's inventing career.
When the Professor sets out to improve the world, unexpected things happen. Making your mechanical helper too clever might be an obvious mistake, but who would have known that tinkering with an old Volkswagen Beetle could turn out to be so dangerous?
And who would have thought that a time machine would turn out to be such a waste of... well... time?
Professor Kompressor is a fictional character, but his adventures are inspired by ideas from science and the modern world. They show that you can have a lot of fun with science and technology, especially if you allow for a little bit of creative misinterpretation.
A book that entertains children of all ages from Professor Nils Andersson, award-winning author and an authority on matters of gravity and the extremes of our weird and wonderful universe.
What did you like best about this story?
Both my daughters (aged 7 and 9) enjoyed it very much. They laughed at the various mishaps and had earnest conversations on why or how the inventions went wrong.
As an adult, I enjoyed the science concepts that were included in each invention. Artificial intelligence, robotics etc are all woven into the stories and introduce the children to science in a tangible manner. We'll be following the rest of the series.
What about Geno Allen’s performance did you like?
Geno is excellent and provides variety in the tone and tempo of the story.
