Science fiction meets science fact! Frank Einstein (kid genius, scientist, and inventor) and his best friend, Watson, team up with Klink (a self-assembled artificial intelligence entity) to create the BrainTurbo to power-boost the human body and help their baseball-pitching pal Janegoodall make the team. But when Klank (a mostly self-assembled and artificial almost intelligence entity) 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!

Praise

"The two-color cartoon illustrations are detailed and engaging…facts are educational and presented in an interesting way…draws readers into the book with its boy-friendly hijinks…This book teaches kids a lot in an accessible, easy-to-read format…"
— Kira Moody, Whitmore Public Library, Salt Lake City, UT, School Library Journal
"Scieszka's third joke-filled Frank Einstein adventure jam-packed with sneaky science lessons is perfect for young scientists who may prefer fact to fiction. Biggs' ample tricolor (orange, black, and white in this outing) illustrations extend both the story and the science. Aftermatter broadens the fun with additional science facts, puzzles, and even baseball tips. Halfway through the series, the science and the sly (and slapstick) laughs are still going strong."
Kirkus
"A perfect page-by-page balance of nerdy science and zany humor will draw readers in and keep them moving."
