Edie's Experiments 1: How to Make Friends




A new school, a classroom full of potential new friends and a science kit. What could possibly go wrong?

I’m Edie and I love science. So I when I started at a new school, I decided it could be one giant experiment.

Can I give you some advice? Avoid sliming your entire classroom. You could end up in trouble with your teacher, your new classmates and the principal.

Between the great slime fiasco, the apology cookie surprise and the wrinkle cream mix-up, I’ve discovered making friends isn’t an exact science!
