Publisher Comments:

Grdankl the Strong, president of Kprshtskan, is plotting to take over the American government. His plan is to infiltrate the science fair at Hubble Middle School, located in a Maryland suburb just outside Washington. The rich kids at Hubble cheat by buying their projects every year, and Grdankl's cronies should have no problem selling them his government-corrupting software. But this year, Toby Harbinger, a regular kid with Discount Warehouse shoes, is determined to win the $5,000 prize--even if he has to go up against terrorists to do it. With the help of his best friends, Tamara and Micah, Toby takes on Assistant Principal Paul Parmit, aka "The Armpit", a laser-eyed stuffed owl, and two eBay buyers named Darth and the Wookiee who seem to think that the Harrison-Ford-signed BlasTech DL-44 blaster Toby sold them is a counterfeit. What transpires is a hilarious adventure filled with mystery, suspense, and levitating frogs.


"The short chapters plus the promise of a sequel will please reluctant readers as well as those seeking laughs, suspense and floating amphibians." Kirkus Reviews

Barry and Pearson did it again. Give them an A++ for their latest CRAZY, fun and engrossing book! The story involves a sparking roller-blade Barbie, a nervous, floating frog, "borrowed" highly sensitive, highly classified technology, and a smelly green cheese/weapon traditionally stored in Kprshtskanis' pants among other things too numerous to list. The "cast" is no less eclectic, zany and numerous. I don't want to give any of the plots away, but suffice it to say, my whole family really enjoyed the book, from my 6-year old son to my husband and I.

Science Fair is a must read for all Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson fans. It may look a little wacky from the synopsis on the back cover or the inside flap, but it is a great story full of suspense, mystery, and lots and lots of laughs. If you have never read any books by these two authors, then you absolutely must, and this is a good place to start. I also highly recommend Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's Peter and the Starcatchers, along the rest of its trilogy.
