2013, Quirk Books
Series: Book 1 of Nick and Tesla
The Good: This book is such a cool endeavor. The kids are smart, make awesome things and save the day. I loved how this book made science fun. I also loved the experiments and how they included instructions with pictures for readers to be able to try them out on their own. And there was a cliffhanger that definitely enticed me to get right into reading the next book.
The Bad: The actual writing isn't all that great. The sentences were clunky. There was no flow to them at all, so that I had to go back and reread sections a few times to understand what was really going on. I can't even imagine how frustrating that would be for a young reader attempting to read this book given how annoying it was for me.
