Brian will be hosting a story time at 6:30pm, followed by a meet-and-greet signing!
Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor
Frank Einstein (A) is a kid-genius scientist and inventor. Klink (B) is a self-assembled artificial-intelligence entity. And Klank (C) is a mostly self-assembled and artificial almost intelligence entity. Together they create Antimatter Motor using the three states of matter: solid (D), liquid (E), and gas (F). Their plans to win the Midville Science Prize are all but guaranteed -- until Frank's classmate and archrival T. Edison shows up!
"Frank Einstein loves figuring out how the world works by creating household contraptions that are part science, part imagination, and definitely unusual. After an uneventful experiment in his garage-lab, a lightning storm and flash of electricity bring Frank’s inventions—the robots Klink and Klank—to life! Not exactly the ideal lab partners, the wisecracking Klink and the overly expressive Klank nonetheless help Frank attempt to perfect his Antimatter Motor . . . until Frank’s archnemesis, T. Edison, steals Klink and Klank for his evil doomsday plan! Using real science, Jon Scieszka has created a unique world of adventure and science fiction—an irresistible chemical reaction for middle-grade readers."
