Product Description

Synopsis

Boing-Boing the Bionic Cat and the Jewel Thief continues the adventures of Daniel, a young boy allergic to cats, and Boing-Boing the Bionic Cat, his amazing, robotic cat made for him by his kindly neighbor, Professor George. As a surprise for Daniel, Professor George adds a new ceramic part to the robotic cat he created, giving Boing-Boing the ability to ROAR like a lion! What Professor George doesnAt realize is just how important this new feature will be. What excitement awaits the invincible duo, Daniel and his bionic cat, during their trip to the natural history museum? Dinosaurs? Tigers? Whales? A Jewel Thief? During a Saturday afternoon trip to the museum, Daniel and Boing-Boing stumble into an adventure and soon learn that things aren't always as they seem. Professor George, Boing-Boing, and Daniel bring engineering and science to life through the creation of a bionic cat and their exciting adventures and discoveries. This second book in the Boing-Boing the Bionic CatTM series continues to entertain while teaching children about the evolving process of science, the benefits and limits of technology, and the caring and understanding from adult role models. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boing Boing the Bionic Cat and the Jewel Thief 21 Jun 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I did not want to put the books down. The three books are very good as they are not predictable. The best bit is how Professor George makes the bionic cat and I really liked making the kit. It is strange that a bionic cat can be loveable just like a real pet. This book is the second book and I would recommend this to everyone who likes animals and science.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT MIX OF SCIENCE AND STORY 16 Mar 2008
By elad67
Format:Paperback
I have a son who is really into science but not so much into reading. Its been impossible to get books at the level of science he is interested in that he is able to read. This book is great in that it mentions many aspects of physics while following a story. I would say that the explanations of how things work could be expanded on. There is a great glossary and good diagrams to help but would be better to include these explanations as part of the story. The illustrations are good but a bit repetitive and I do think they could be improved in that respect as children who are being read to rely on them to help with the story. Would very much recommend this book as this type are hard to come by.

5.0 out of 5 stars A madcap tangle with a clever jewel thief 17 Aug 2001
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This children's picturebook continues the adventures of Daniel, a young boy allergic to cats, and Boing-Boing the Bionic Cat, his robotic cat that the kindly Professor George made for him. In this story, Boing-Boing gets a new ceramic part in addition to his fiber-optic fur, computer-controlled joints, electronic eyes, and ceramic-sensor whiskers - Boing-Boing can now roar like a lion! Extensive prose at a reading level recommended for ages 7-11 and simple, sketchy illustrations in soft color bring the madcap tangle with a clever jewel thief to life. Also recommended is the first book in this series, which is titled simply Boing-Boing The Bionic Cat.
