The Big Kerplop!: The Original Adventure of the Mad Scientists' Clubby Bertrand R. Brinley
And what is that object? Why a bomb, what else? Not just a common, ordinary, conventional bomb
The whine of jet engines thunders from above as the giant Air Force bomber makes its approach to Westport Field. Suddenly, the citizens of Mammoth Falls are startled to see the bomb bay doors open and an object drop down, down, directly into Strawberry lake. Splash!
And what is that object? Why a bomb, what else? Not just a common, ordinary, conventional bomb, but an atomic bomb! That's just the beginning of the latest (actually the first) madcap adventure - book-length this time - of that outrageous, notorious threat to municipal sanity known as The Mad Scientists' Club. As you know, with these boys anything can happen, and it does!

I am posting again so it gets five stars
Not as good as the original (none of the three sequels is), but still worth reading. This book is a "pre-quel," so I think Brinley could have fleshed out the characters a bit more, while still making them consistent with their introductory selves from the first book. Instead, he took most of them in different directions, which I found annoying. 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 I give it a thumbs-up.
