About The Book

The fun continues at Franken-Sci High in this third book in a wacky series created with The Jim Henson Company.

Franken-Sci High is the only school in the world for aspiring mad scientists and it’s located on a craggy island in the Bermuda Triangle, of course! While some mad scientists are power-hungry maniacs, the school was founded in 1536 as a refuge for generations of brilliant—and sometimes eccentric—young minds. Students are encouraged to use their brainpower for good, but the teachers accept that some kids will want to take over the world…and the school cafeteria.

When his robot friend, Theremin Rozika, aces a test that he was really nervous about, Newton Warp is surprised to see that his friend looks sad instead of happy. Theremin’s father programmed him to never be smarter than his dear old dad: If Theremin begins to do well in one area of study, he immediately fails every other subject. So Newton and his friend Shelly Ravenholt attempt to reprogram Theremin, with disastrous results. Instead of making Theremin smarter, they accidentally make him speak in Pig Latin! They’re forced to contact Theremin’s father, Dr. Rozika, to repair their friend’s code. Can they also convince him to give Theremin the freedom to succeed?
