Overview

It wasn't the diamond as big as the Ritz but it was a pretty big chunk of ice and it got the precocious pranksters of The Mad Scientists' Club entwined in an international intrigue that only the intrepid investigators of Interpol could unravel. Take the seven young mad scientists of Mammoth Falls, stick them in an antiquated blimp bound for the Austrian Alps, along with two "hep" young college girls and a zany professor of mysterious Rumanian origins, and you have the makings of a high-flying fun fest that could only come from the author of The Mad Scientists Club and The Big Kerplop! If you're not already a fan of superbrain Henry Mulligan, dinky Dinky Poore, fat Freddy Muldoon, and the other unpredictable troublemakers that populate this series of mad, mad adventure stories, you will be, once you read the Big Chunk of Ice.

    Better than The Big Kerplop

    Not as good as the original (none of the three sequels is), but still worth reading. Brinley fleshed out the characters a bit more than he did in The Big Kerplop, while still making them mostly consistent with their introductory selves from the first book. His female characters seem awfully silly, which I found annoying. I wish he had sent Daphne Muldoon and a friend (perhaps Melissa Plunkett could have been persuaded to dump Stony Martin in favor of Charlie, the narrator?) along instead of the girls he did send. Maybe it's just the difference between my 10-year-old self, when I first devoured the original, and my fifty-something self, but this book just didn't seem to have quite as much magic as the original. Even so, it's worth reading, and, like The Big Kerplop, I give it a thumbs-up.
