5.0 out of 5 stars The best Professor ever is back!, 3 Feb. 2014
Not so long ago kids and parents were given the opportunity to get to know Professor Kompressor, the somewhat crazy inventor that likes to create amazingly strange things that not always works out the way they are planned to. In the first book the Professor wreaked quite a bit of a havoc not only around his house, but also around the world with all his inventions. Now the Professor is back with even more strange ideas, most of them pretty spectacular and very, very funny.

I want to tell ALL parents with kids that like mystery, witchcraft, technical ideas and fantasy, to read the books about Professor Kompressor to their kids. The books are funny, interesting, pretty amazing and will not only give the children a good laugh but also the parents, especially when it comes to trying to explaining all the technical data to their kids. I’m not so sure that I would manage to properly explain the Professor’s Black Hole Bin. When he puts a lid on the Bin, and paints it over with anti-gravity paint and sends it out into the sky it sounds absolutely alright by me, but how do you explain that to a seven year old? Might be a bit difficult, even though it seems a very smart solution. My knowledge of physics isn’t good enough to explain what the Professor does to an intrigued youngster, but I will still try to do it just to continue reading about the crazy Professor.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Professor Returns, 25 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Professor Kompressor goes environ-mental (Kindle Edition)
From the pun in the title to the very last word, this book gripped adult and child alike. More tales about the professor and his inventions, with help from his dog Spot and his long suffering housekeeper. The stories (or the profeessor's inventions within the stories) have the own perverse logic, relying heavily on elements of modern physics, but in a way that kids can understand. This time though the stories are a little less sci-fi and a bit more about every day problems: the environment; rubbish disposal. There is even the beginnings of love, investigated by the professor through glossy magazines(?). Will romance blossom in a story that tips its hat in the direction of "The Sorceror" by Gilbert and Sullivan. In summary, a fun read for adults and children, but when shared a thing of rare beauty.
