On the surface, Henry White and Radcliffe Green seem like your typical old “middle of nowhere” farmers. But beneath the façade of Midwestern American homesteading, these two rivals are secretly brilliant (and wild!) scientists, dedicated to exploring and controlling the secrets of nature and technology. White and Green both have hidden labs beneath their farms, and an ever-evolving collection of remarkable robots, cyborgs, super-plants, gadgets, and more!
Through a series of inter-connected adventures, the two farmers, their minions, and the folks of Turingsburg County experience the excitement, danger, and fun of experiments pushed to the limit! How will farmers White and Green handle the escape of their robotic, ice cream-flinging snowmen and super-smart cyborg rats?
Will the farmers' high-tech attempts to save the town time and money help Turingsburg or wreck it? Who will grow the best cabbage? Listen and find out! Planting Strong Roots is the first in a series of the (Mildly) Mad Scientists of Turingsburg County books. It includes these stories:
"The Crazy Cabbage Challenge"
"The Beautiful Disaster"
"Attack of the Summer Snowmen"
