Review: Nick and Tesla's Super-Cyborg Gadget Glove: A Mystery with a Blinking, Beeping, Voice-Recording Gadget Glove You Can Build Yourself by "Science Bob" Pflugfelder and Steve Hickensmith

Synopsis: Bright siblings—and amateur inventors—Nick and Tesla Holt are back in this fourth installment of their whiz-bang middle-grade series. This time, the twins are out to save science itself, as they race against the clock to figure out why a robotic assortment of history’s greatest scientists and inventors keeps going haywire. Is this sabotage, robo-geddon…or something more sinister? To unravel the mystery, they’ll have to keep adding all-new gadgets to their cyborg glove as they stay one step ahead of a hidden adversary. Together with zany scientist Uncle Newt and their friends Silas and DeMarco, Nick and Tesla won’t give up until an answer is found…but can they do it before time runs out? In this book, readers will learn how to construct a super-cyborg gadget glove that has four incredible functions: LED signal light, ultra-loud emergency alarm, handy sound recorder, and UV secret message revealer. Science and electronics have never been so much fun! (From the online description)

Review: I love this series! Once again, we join our intrepid sleuthing duo, twins Nick and Tesla, as they solve the mystery and catch the bad guys using science! Pflugfelder and Hockesmith fill these pages with humor, memorable characters, crazy plot twists and of course - Science! Not only do you get to learn about pioneers in science, space travel, new energy sources, but you get to build a Cyborg Glove! SO COOL! I can't wait to dig around in our garage and see if I can make one for me - and yes, I'm a grown adult. I HIGHLY recommend this book - for adults, for geeks and nerds, for scientists and teachers and of course, ANYONE with kids, boys or girls. This is one of the few series out there where the girl and boy are both accomplished scientists - with a healthy dose of curiously! A fun, humorous, scienti-er-rific read! Start with book one and get them all!
