  • Jarod mentions James Patrick Creswell, a theoretical physicist that says that technology will accelerate, doubling every year! So what do you think the world will look like in the year 2047?

  • Fairyflies or fairy wasps are some of the smallest insects on the planet but have a significant role in the story of the Lemonade Code. As you check out Jey's excellent illustrations of Robbie's fairyflies, think about why scientists gave these insects their name.

  • What makes Robbie the antagonist of the story?

  • Jarod and Jey love blueberry lemonade! What is your favorite lemonade flavor?

  • Robby's lemonade stand machine is called the Automatista, which can deliver any lemonade flavor combination you want, even a spicy pickled chimichurri booger lemonade! So what exciting flavor combination can you invent?

  • When Jarod was growing up, he would write stories about epic battles based on his toy collection of Transformers and Star Wars figures. Can you look around your room and find toys or figures that you could use to write a story?

  • Jey and Jarod make a great team and collaboration! Jey also talks about his brother's influence and support, and Jarod shares his ideas with his cousin and a circle of writers. Can you think of people you can team up with for a project or idea in your life?
