Nick and Tesla are back!

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!

our thoughts
What a fantastic book. I love the ongoing adventures of Nick and Tesla, along with friends Silas and DeMarco. This adventure has the kids in a museum. They were originally involved in an audio animatronic exhibit but....become involved in something far more interesting.

Book is full of science ideas and instructions to build a gadget glove. (Adult supervision in needed). If your kids love science they will love these stories. This one is the best yet! Sister and brother team ensure that if your child is either a boy or a girl, the child can relate to one the kids in the stories, personally, my favorite is Uncle Newt- he's a hoot!

Each installment in this series is better than the previous stories. Each adventure, more daring. All around fun!
