I received a complimentary copy of this book from Quirk Books in exchange for a review.

The Nick & Tesla series returns with a very interesting story and one of the coolest projects so far: A gadget Glove! I’m really enjoying how Steve and Science Bob are creating new experiences and mysteries for Nick & Tesla and the readers. In this volume we find the kids helping their Uncle Newt and his friend (possibly future girlfriend) Hiroko, crate an animatronics wing in the museum with Einstein, Darwin and many other scientists.

 

Of course mystery and adventure stick to this two twins like glue so it isn't long before they are fighting against sabotage, a disapproving curator and a secret that requires cool gadgets.

I found the story elements in this volume very enjoyable. The writers have definitely found their groove in terms of great dialogue and the insertion of scientific elements. Though I haven't done many of the activities in the prior books this awesome glove is hard to resist! I definitely plan of making one myself. This is a great all ages read perfect for boys and girls. I continue to be impressed with Tesla’s character development as well as the twins friends Silas and Demarco.

A really fun read with a great project families can work on together.
