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.
