Loved this graphic novel-chapter book hybrid (think Wimpy Kid again) about a truly quirky young girl scientist who has found a new species of animal--an olgamus ridiculus, an alien creature that looks somewhat like a cat and a bit like a pig. In this volume, Olgamus has babies in Olga's refrigerators--and a house full of Olgamus babies is more than one Olga can take care of! Very funny and highly original. Great for quirky kids and those who like quirky stories! For grades 3-5.

Didn't realize this was a part of a series at first but made it through the book just fine having jumped into this one (the third one). Really quirky book. With even quirkier illustrations. Strange, funny, and probably a book many kids would find entertaining. Would recommend for 2nd/3rd grade and up.

Olga's creature Meh has had a litter of babies, and Olga is quite busy cleaning out the refrigerator so the new family can nest there. She enlists her crew of friends to help, which is a good thing, because as the babies grow they wander a lot and poop rainbow poop everywhere! Before long, Awesome magazine wants to do a photo shoot with the babies and Olga, and a lot of pink and glitter is involved. She is also worried about Mu being edged out from his food, and is concerned about al

Another adorable adventure featuring Olga and Meh that's filled with fun facts, science, hilarity, and just enough grossness. A nice, fun read.

This is such a great read, especially for young and/or reluctant readers. Humorous, silly, and slightly gross all while promoting STEM, reading, and learning. Such a wonderful series.

As with the other books, I enjoyed the story and artwork. I've really enjoyed watching Olga come out of her shell and make f

Olga's pet, Meh, likes to sleep in the garbage can! She only eats olives. She has an adorable face and is nicer than most humans. So Olga loves her but Meh is a lot of work. I really like this book and want to read more.

Being a scientist and caring for an alienate both important responsibilities. They require attention, effort and help.

This is a great series, especially for kids who like zany characters like Dory Fantasmagory and Franny K. Stein. I find it very challenging to find read-aloud books for my kids who are three years apart--one is just learning to read and one is a very strong independent reader. But, books with lots of humorous bits, like this series, work well. My older child is willing to 'read down' if the story is funny enough.

This is the longest book we’ve read at bedtime so far. We read 1-2 chapters a night and the girls really enjoyed it. Elise Gravel is a fav.
