Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor

Jon Scieszka, Brian Biggs

Frank Einstein loves to tinker, build and take things apart. He loves to observe, hypothesise, experiment and invent. Frank Einstein is a kid genius who loves figuring out how the world works by creating household contraptions that are part science, part imagination and definitely unusual. After an uneventful experiment with a garage-lab artificially intelligent RoboBug, a lightning storm and a flash of electricity, Frank’s inventions - the robots Klink and Klank - suddenly come to life.

Not exactly the ideal lab partners, the wise-cracking Klink and the overly expressive Klank are a help nonetheless as Frank attempts to perfect his Dark Energy Drive …that is until Frank’s arch nemesis, T. Edison, steals Klink and Klank for his evil doomsday plan! With the help of his friends, Frank sets out to rescue the robots and stop T. Edison from carrying out his twisted plans!

Using real science and drawing inspiration from the classic pulp stories of Tom Swift, Jon Scieszka has created a unique world of adventure and science fiction.

Review

Frank Einstein is planning something very big for the school science fair. He is busy with his pair of intelligent robots, Klink and Klank, making an ‘Antimatter Motor’ in his grandad’s garage. All is well until T Edison appears – Frank’s arch nemesis and a known villain – with his eyes also on the science fair prize.

This clever novel is the first in a new series that combines action-packed stories with well-explained and accessible science, great characters and plenty of Jon Scieszka’s much-loved hilarity. There are illustrations, graphs, diagrams and even sign language by way of an oddball chimpanzee.

A fantastic and very fun read for budding scientists aged 8 and up.
