Put on your mad scientist goggles because Marvelous Makeable Monsters is a book full of projects that will let you create your own customisable monster!

Experiment, learn, and imagine as you make the 20+ spinning, swimming, flying, and lurking creatures of Marvelous Makeable Monsters.

What can a makeable monster do? They motor, inflate, wobble, drool, soar, and one of them can even do push-ups. Add a pair of wings, subtract a tentacle...the best thing about these monsters is that they're part experiment, part imagination, and 100 percent customizable. Author Sam Haynor draws on his experience with the San Francisco Exploratorium, Oakland Toy Lab, Goldiblocks, and designing STEAM curriculum to create projects packed with features.

While, on the outside, most appear to be built completely from common craft materials, they contain circuits, levers, projectile-launchers, puzzles, and much more. The projects are safe and fun for younger kids working with adults, and most of them can be tackled by middle-graders with minimal adult help.
