Nick and Tesla's Robot Army Rampage by "Science Bob" Pflugfelder and Steve Hockensmith

Someone has stolen a very valuable comic book.  It could mean salvation for the comic book store but now it's gone...

Quirk Books sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It was published February 4th, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.  If you have a mechanically inclined child, I'd pick up the first book too.  These are not only a good read, they teach science and give children a project to build (with adult help).

Nick and Tesla are intrigued to see robots appearing in all the stores.  There are hoverbots, bristlebots and more.  Would you like to learn to build one?  There are directions in the book!

Could the robots have something to do with the theft?  I think so.  But how?  And who?  And why?

Written for middle grades, the story is busy, a bit silly and lots of fun to read.  Making robots sounds like fun, too.  Here's a good read with activities for you.  Why not make your own robot and see if yours does as well as your child's?

Happy reading and playing both.
