Overview

Science Fair by Dave Barry, Ridley Pearson


Grdankl the Strong, president of Krpshtskan, 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 counterfeit. What transpires is a hilarious adventure filled with mystery, suspense, and levitating frogs.

This book is fantastic. Very funny humor. Completely for people who love peter and the starcatchers. Next reccomended book: The Supernaturalist by Eoin Colfer

This was so funny! My 8 year-old (she's an advanced reader) and I read it together and even I didn't want to put it down. She still quotes parts from it. Just imagine a high speed chase with a Wiener Mobile involving constumed Star Wars fans and spies with cheese in their pants and you'll get the picture of just how out there this book is.

I've read Peter and the Shadow Thieves by the same people and it was really good, but for some reason I'm kind of reluctant to buy this book. Is it really as good as every one is saying? What if I don't like it? The only reason I'm saying this is because it doesn't sound like something I would like to read, but at the same time part of me thinks I should give it a try. Any tips?
