I’m not sure who the target audience is for this book other than the younger mensa crowd.

Feb 04, Jsagat rated it it was amazing Shelves: A scientific and mathematical book that circles around a boy named Archibald whose mother just can’t get over how, for a lack of a better term, dorky her son is. This is a good read read for students who have different interests than their peers and may feel out of the loop.

He does end up becoming popular and somewhat athletic, but by his own fault through the use of science, math, and experimentation.

This is the Story of Archibald Frisby: Who Was as Crazy for Science as Any Kid Could Be

Awkward phrasing made it hard for me to enjoy reading this to my boys. This is also a good lead in for a Science lesson. However, I dislike that the mother appears unsupportive of his STEM interests and the book seems like it can’t quite decide whether it is supportive of STEM fields or not.


Different science concepts were mentioned such as photosynthesis and even constellations. Frisbu has science on his mind.

In the end his mother could not believe that he was the same boy with all of his toys. During recess he would read books about science, he would spend his nights dissecting flowers, and so much more. This story follows a little boy who is absolutely obsessed with STEM field subjects and would rather read algebra and other texts than play sports. Full Cast and Crew.

His mother is “horrified” by his obsession and thinks he needs to have fun and sends him to summer camp. This story is set to rhyme, and it would be a great book to kick off the year in science class.
