Description
More clever science experiments, funny jokes, and robot hijinks await readers in book five 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 science and mysteries of planet Earth! 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 involving a lightning storm and a flash of electricity brings 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 fifth book in the series, Frank—along with his best friend, Watson, and Klink and Klank—once again finds himself in competition with his classmate and archrival T. Edison and his sign-language-speaking sidekick, Mr. Chimp, over Frank’s newest invention: the Bio-Action Gizmo.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. The Frank Einstein series encourages middle-grade listeners 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.”Listen to all the books on audio 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), Frank Einstein and the EvoBlaster Belt (Book 4), and Frank Einstein and the Bio-Action Gizmo (Book 5).

      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: This humorous audio addition to the Frank Einstein series is narrated by author Jon Scieszka and illustrator Brian Biggs. This short narration opens up with Scieszka's onomatopoeic "Smash! Crack!" as a thunderstorm sends AI entities Clink and Clank, voiced by Biggs, into a fearful frenzy. Clink and Clank's offbeat electronic communication systems sound slightly human but are clearly mechanical. Throughout the story, Scieszka and Biggs skillfully introduce a variety of characters while continuously playing to their intended audience by paying special attention to pronunciation, reading speed, and clarity. Though created with younger listeners in mind, this endearing story is sure to amuse those of all ages. V.C. � AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine
