Min is back and still solving problems like a pro. It is so hot that no one wants to play with Min. She makes a fan–still too hot for Ann and Bess. If only the old pool had water; playing in the pool would be perfect on such a hot day. Min (aka MacGyver) is on the job! First she finds an old well then, using only her STEM knowledge, a tube, a hos Min is back and still solving problems like a pro. It is so hot that no one wants to play with Min. She makes a fan–still too hot for Ann and Bess. If only the old pool had water; playing in the pool would be perfect on such a hot day. Min (aka MacGyver) is on the job! First she finds an old well then, using only her STEM knowledge, a tube, a hose, and some glue, she siphons the water from the well into the pool. This amazing bit of science fills the pool and fun play in the cool water follows. McCully’s illustrations are spare but perfect for the text and focus on the action at hand. Her depiction of Min’s syphon is clear and easy to reproduce, if one should want. VERDICT This pachyderm’s predilection for problem solving will delight readers who will want to try this for themselves. Sure to be popular for STEM lessons and a good addition for most ­collections.–Catherine Callegari, ­Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH, School Library Journal
