This book was delightful. It did feel like things happened fairly quickly, especially the resolution, but given the target age and length of the book that seems pretty normal.
There are also instructions throughout so that you can make your own version of the crazy gadgets Nick and Tesla come up with! What's not to love?
Boo is a HUGE HUGE HUGE fan of this series. It combines two of her favorite things: science and mysteries. I asked her if she had anything to add to a review and she said "Awesome, awesome, and AWESOME!"
We've been getting them for review as they come out and they disappear as soon as they arrive... I don't see it again until she's done. Though, really, that's usually later the same day because she just devours them.
Equal appeal for a boy or girl here-- it's a great brother/sister duo.
