Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor by Jon Scieszka
Published August 19, 2014 by Amulet Books
Frank Einstein is a science genius. He works on inventions and helps his grandpa with his shop while his crazy parents are traveling around the world for their travel blog. But Gramps is about to lose the shop because of the lack of finances, and Frank is convinced that he can win the Science Fair and win the money he needs to keep it open. On the night he tries to bring his robot to life, he misses his chance. Or so he thinks—a spark creates a chain reaction and builds two robots; and Frank is oblivious. After his failed invention, he wants to create something bigger, and better with the robots help, but his arch-nemesis may prove to be an obstacle. In a science-filled story, Jon Scieszka writes an illustrated adventure that is great for younger readers.
I thought this book was a fast and fun read. I liked everything about this book, and I think young readers will love it, as well as fans of science. The illustrations were amazing, and I love the cover. This was a wonderful start to a sure-to-be-loved middle-grade series!
