Frank Einstein and the Electro-Finger

4 Stars

In this second edition of the “Frank Einstein” books, Frank and Watson are learning about energy. While inventing an environmentally safe for of energy (the electro-finger) that can be used thanks to the magnetism of the world, evil scientist T. Edison is trying to destroy energy sources. T. Edison believes that if all of the energy is destroyed (other than his energy) the whole city will be forced to pay him in order to live…and thus he will get rich. With the help of the humorous robots Klink and Klank, can Frank and Watson work together to save the world’s energy in time? Will T. Edison (and his conniving Mr. Chimp) really destroy all the energy?

This is another great edition to the series. Not only does it explain basic science/energy concepts, but it does it in such a way that kids will enjoy laughing as they learn. And once again the play on Frankenstein and Einstein is quite fun for all those who understand the fun science mash-ups. This is perfect for kids who enjoy science and learning but also enjoy laughing while reading a great story. Well done.
