When Olga crosses paths with a weird creature and becomes the first kid to discover the species olgamus ridiculus, she is ecstatic! What does an olgamus eat? How does it poop? Why does its burp sound like the word rubber? With her trusty observation notebook and the help of a librarian, a shopkeeper, and some friends, Olga sets out to do science-learning the facts about her smelly, almost-furry pal and searching for him when he goes missing. The scientific method is the best way to discover anything!

Great book in the Diary of a Wimpy kid genre. Olga is a future zoologist and an avid observer who discovers a creature some call the Fart Balloon!

Olga is a smart young girl who likes animals more than people. She loves science and the scientific method. She is careful and observant and she keeps all her findings in a notebook. This habit will come in handy when she discovers an unknown animal, that even a trip to the library ( her description of the librarian is hilariously accurate hahahah) cant solve. Will Olga every find out what the smelly thing is? Will she always like animals more than people? the only way to find out is to read this delightful book!!

Delightful and fun! Bonus: Olga's Famous Olive Muffins recipe is delicious.

This book is funny, cartoony, and totally kooky! I loved it and it made me laugh out loud several times. It has enough ridiculousness and bathroom humor to keep any child turning the pages. Plus, of course I loved that one of the coolest characters in the book is a librarian.
