Super-Cyborg Gadget Glove by "Science Bob" Pflugfelder and Steve Hockensmith

Somebody has plans to sabotage the museum's grand opening.  Who can it be?

Quirk Books sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It will be published October 7th, so you can grab a copy then.

This is a fun series with science experiments that children can do at home with adult supervision.  The project this time is a cyborg hand and it's by far the best and most intriguing one yet.  I'm almost tempted to make one of these for myself.  Imagine if you wore it at Halloween...

The same silly patter goes in on in this book as in the others.  Uncle Newt and his female friend Hiroko are putting an exhibit together of famous men in history.  Unfortunately, everything goes south just before the museum opens to the public.  How did it happen and why did it happen?  Who wanted to ruin it?

The kids are supposed to be helping their Uncle and staying out of trouble, but you know how that goes.  Uncle Newt is so scatter-brained he can barely keep track of himself.  They take off to try to find out what's going on and meet the security guard who calls them punks.  The more they sniff out, the more confused they get.

It's full of comedy that resembles the Three Stooges, has plenty of action, and lots of odd characters to make it a fun read with a challenging project.  Any child who has read this series in the past will want this new one.  It's the best yet.
