Overview

Victor Godwin, a serious-minded boy genius living in Philadelphia, discovers that Ben Franklin never died - he was put into suspended animation, and was hidden away for more than 200 years in Victor's basement! An accident re-awakens Ben centuries before he was supposed to be, and there's a problem - when Ben runs low on energy, he turns into a rampaging monster desperately hungry for electricity! All this while Victor is trying to take first place in the school science fair. But with one of history's preeminent scientists helping out, what could go wrong?

"Victor is one of the funniest nerds in children's literature." - School Library Journal

"A welcome diversion to pass the hours between scoring science-fair ribbons and exploding . . . home chemistry sets." - Booklist

Its a very good book for kids 10 and older but one thing is that some kids are picky when it comes to reading. Like my kid she doesnt like historical books that much, but this gave a little kick to it. And she loved it.

I loved it and it wasnt that hard but it was insanely fun to read and boring is the absolute opposite of thiis book so that guy should shut up who said it was boring. I dont love reading but i couldnt get out of this book because it sucked me in. Anyone who likes mysteries i think that this would be a amazing choice because its not hard, it keeps you sucked in, and i know that you would love this book. #1 choice for me and i hope it is for you to because i would hate to see you disagree with me
