"Huge laughs and great science--the kind of smart, funny stuff that makes Jon Scieszka a legend."

--Jeff Kinney, Diary of a Wimpy Kid

More clever science experiments, funny jokes, and robot hijinks await readers in book three of the New York Times bestselling Frank Einstein chapter book series from the mad scientist team of Jon Scieszka and Brian Biggs. The perfect combination to engage and entertain readers, the series features real science facts with adventure and humor, making these books ideal for STEM education. This latest installment examines the quest to unlock the power behind the science of "the human body."

Kid-genius and inventor Frank Einstein loves figuring out how the world works by creating household contraptions that are part science, part imagination, and definitely unusual. In the series opener, an uneventful experiment in his garage-lab, a lightning storm, and a flash of electricity bring Frank's inventions--the robots Klink and Klank--to life! Not exactly the ideal lab partners, the wisecracking Klink and the overly expressive Klank nonetheless help Frank attempt to perfect his inventions. In the third book in the series, Frank creates the BrainTurbo to power-boost the human body and help his baseball-pitching pal Janegoodall make the team. But when Klank goes missing, they must first rescue their robot pal and stop T. Edison--Frank's classmate and archrival--from stealing their latest invention and using it against them!

Integrating real science facts with wacky humor, a silly cast of characters, and science fiction, this uniquely engaging series is an irresistible chemical reaction for middle-grade readers. With easy-to-read language and graphic illustrations on almost every page, this chapter book series is a must for reluctant readers. The Frank Einstein series encourages middle-grade readers to question the way things work and to discover how they, too, can experiment with science. In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews raves, "This buoyant, tongue-in-cheek celebration of the impulse to 'keep asking questions and finding your own answers' fires on all cylinders," while Publishers Weekly says that the series "proves that science can be as fun as it is important and useful."

Read all the books in the New York Times bestselling Frank Einstein series: Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor (Book 1), Frank Einstein and the Electro-Finger (Book 2), Frank Einstein and the BrainTurbo (Book 3), and Frank Einstein and the EvoBlaster Belt (Book 4).

I read Frank Einstein and the Brain Turbo. Frank Einstein and his robots with the help of his pal Watson make the Brain turbo to help their friend Janegoodall Jones make the Midville baseball team. Simultaneously, Frank's enemy T. Edison is trying to steal the Brain Turbo and one of Frank's robots to control people's minds.

This book made anything possible with a little bit of science. I would recommend this book to any science - fiction and Leonardo Da Vinci lover.
