Booklist - 03/01/2020 It’s the first day back to school and Pablo and Violet, best friends since forever, are super excited to be in the same class together. Especially when they get to study their favorite subject: science! They're soon joined by a new teammate, Deepak—a change Pablo isn't too sure he likes. When Mr. Eng, the science teacher, gives the kids an in-class assignment, something weird happens: the three kids are transported into a Maker Maze where, with help from wild Dr. Crisp, they must complete challenges in order to return to their world. Will they make it? And will Pablo learn to accept Deepak? This early reader is fun and relatable as well as educational. As a bonus, it includes easy maker activities for kids to complete. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.

School Library Journal - 06/01/2020 K-Gr 3—Pablo and Violet are best friends. When new student Deepak joins their duo, Pablo isn't so sure he likes the competition as Violet's best friend. The three are grouped together for a science project, and before long, they're whisked away to a magical Maker Maze run by the eccentric Dr. Crisp. The three must work together to complete three levels of the maze, and to cement their friendship as a trio, before time runs out. This series is great for kids who are looking for an adventure that isn't scary. The science theme is fun, educational, and age-appropriate for the intended audience. The cartoonish illustrations pair well with the text and add context and emotion to the plot. VERDICT Fans of "The Magic School Bus" series will enjoy this as a step up in reading level with a similar theme. A recommended purchase for public and school libraries.—Jessica Trafton, Skidompha Lib., Damariscotta, ME - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
