" When Iqbal learns of the upcoming Science Fair he is determined not only to win but also to build something that will help his family. During monsoon season Iqbal’s mother must cook indoors causing the smoke from the fire to make his family sick. From a broken umbrella he creates a solar cook stove. Young scientist age’s eight to 12 will enjoy learning how to make one themselves. " said.

" This is an entirely fictional account of a kid who comes up with a simple solar oven in an area deprived of electricity, and how that helped his mom's asthma, aided in the global warming fight, and allowed the family to progress to a propane stove when necessary.Food for thought about the impact of science projects on future progress. " said.

" Iqbal needs and idea for his science fair project. After watching is mother cook over a stove inside and inhale its fumes, he decides to create a solar stove and use the funds from winning to buy a propane stove for monsoon months. The end notes include information on how to create your own solar stove.An inspiring story about how a school assignment changes a family’s life. " said.

" The story of Iqbal is one that has so many global implications!! The story of how a young, thoughtful engineer can create something that can improve the quality of life for his family and other women, improving gender equality, is phenomenal. I'm thrilled that Citizen Kids published it and raises stories like this to the forefront. Also, having a Muslim character and introducing Ramadan to mainstream literature is something to be celebrated. " said.

" Iqbal invents a solar cooker made from an old umbrella and foil, helping the health of his mom and baby sister, as well as the environment. I did think from the title this was a nonfiction book about a child inventor, so I was disappointed to find out it was fictional, and also that the idea was one he found from others, but slightly modify.I do love the illustrations from Rebecca Green; her style compliments the story beautifully. Overall an engaging story! " said.

" This is a fictional story of a boy living in Bangladesh whose mother and baby sister are from the smoke and air pollution caused by cooking inside. Eager to solve the problem for his family and to do a science project on sustainability, he comes up with a solution. This is a very interesting way of introducing such a vital scientific topic, helping children become aware of real problems and empower them to become problem solvers. " said.

" Iqbal needs to come up with a good idea for a science fair project, so he looks around his home and thinks of an idea that will help his mother during the monsoon season. This book may inspire children to look for problems in their own home environments and to come up with economically-friendly solutions. It's also a glimpse inside a family's life in Bangladesh and it's a nice look at solving problems scientifically. " said.
