(Journalinquirer.com, Nov. 24, Richard Tambling)
This chapter book (Science Fair) by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson is outrageously funny at times.
But of course it’s based on an outrageous idea: that a foreign agent might use the projects at a middle school science fair to bring America to its knees.
It’s a plot by Grdankl the Strong, leader of the country of Kprshtskan. One of his agents has schemed to trick filthy rich kids into unknowingly participating in his scheme by getting their mommies and daddies to obtain top secret technology for their projects, which can be hijacked for ulterior motives.
Through circumstance, average kid Toby Harbinger and his best friends Tamara and Micah must battle their way through humiliation, false accusations, and even danger to save us all.
