Sticky and Slipper Fingers Meet the Wild Beast:
by Jennifer Jiang and Michael Pisias
Sticky and Slippery Fingers Meet the Wild Beast is the first manuscript in a chapter book series that revolves around ten-year-old twin brothers who love science.  While Sticky has a passion for chemistry, particularly the chemistry of anything sticky, Slippery loves inventing gadgets with grease-covered gears and other moving parts.  In each of the six manuscripts we have written for this series so far, the two brothers combine their talents to achieve a goal and/or overcome a problem.  Of course, things don’t always go as planned.  In Sticky and Slippery Fingers Meet the Wild Beast, Slippery is building a go-kart, while Sticky is inventing axle grease.  All is almost well until a fluffy black kitten sneaks into the house, ends up under a bowl of goo, gets mistaken for a skunk, and all manner of chaos ensues until the boys create an invention to capture the skunk/kitten, clean up the mess, and win the go-kart race.
