Mr. Docker is a scientist who loves potatoes. He does funny out of this world experiments. In this story Mr. Docker creates a potato powered car. A.J thinks Mr. Docker is a mad crazy scientist.

Personal Reaction:
This is a funny book that shows children that science can be cool and fun, Kids seem to be interested in this book because it is just something unexpected, nothing like they have ever heard before.

Classroom extension ideas:
The class can get in groups and act as if they were scientists like Mr. Docker. They can come up with an out of this world experiment just like he did.
