ALA Booklist
In the third book in the series, Frank is hard at work on an invention to help his friend Janegoodall succeed at pitching tryouts. Meanwhile, his rival, Edison, plots how to steal and use the BrainTurbo for evil purposes (cue diabolical laughter). A perfect page-by-page balance of nerdy science and zany humor will draw readers in and keep them moving. Tie to Gary Paulsen's Harris and Me (1993) and The Schernoff Discoveries (1997) and the Jack books from Jack Gantos to keep readers in stitches. Appended materials on systems within the body will be of particular interest to life-science teachers.
Horn Book
In his third book, genius Frank uses his big brain to secure his pal, Janegoodall, a spot on the baseball team by fine-tuning the human body. Complete with trusty robot sidekicks and an archrival, this joke-filled, slapstick story is interwoven with real science. Back matter extends the knowledge and includes puzzles and baseball tips. Three-color illustrations round out both the humor and science.

Science fiction meets science fact! Frank Einstein (kid genius, scientist, and inventor) and his best friend, Watson, team up with Klink (a self-assembled artificial intelligence entity) to create the BrainTurbo to power-boost the human body and help their baseball-pitching pal Janegoodall make the team. But when Klank (a mostly self-assembled and artificial almost intelligence entity) goes missing, they must first rescue their robot pal and stop T. Edison--Frank's classmate and archrival--from stealing their latest invention and using it against them!
