This book could easily be read and enjoyed by children ages 9-99! The plot and the details of Science Fair are absurd and over the top, but that is why I think we enjoyed it so much. Science Fair is a book that definitely would appeal to kids, with its mix of humor and action.
This book was good, clean fun - not spooky or scary in any way. Haven't laughed like this in a long time! I encourage to feed your sense of humor and adventure by reading "Science Fair"!
While Toby and his friends attempt to solve the mystery, Grdankl the Strong, president of the Republic of Krpshtskan, is sending his minions to the US to carry out his plans. Like the goons in "Big Trouble," they aren't rocket scientists and are easily distracted. Fortunately, several of the legit science projects (featuring Rollerblade Barbie, Diet Coke and a levitating frog) manage to help save the day. Also helping are the Home Shopping Network, Judge Judy, an Oscar Meyer Weinermobile, and an invisibility iPhone.
I've no idea if any of the science details are accurate (some I remember from Barry's columns), but I laughed all the way through. My favorite part was when the President goes onto address the nation, tells them everything is under control and thinks, "I hope they're buying this."
