Review: Do you like mysteries with electromagnets, burglar alarms, and other gadgets you can build yourself? Well then you will love Nick and Tesla's High Voltage Danger Lab by "Science Bob" Pflugfelder and Steve Hockensmith. This is the first book in the Nick and Telsa series.

So there are these two kids, Nick and Tesla, who go to live with their uncle Newt for the summer, while their parents go off to study soybeans. When they make it to Uncle Newts house they find a laboratory, which intrigues them. While visiting they meet knew friends and have a great adventure with many experiments that you can build yourself. It seems like an ordinary story, but there is a deep dark secret roaming within this book. To find out what it is, you'll have to read it yourself.

This is an amazing book. To start off, it gives instructions on how to build the gadgets that they build. With precise instructions on each step, they seem easy to build. Also it is kid friendly. There are descriptive words that might be a little scary but only words not actions. It is an easy read and is not very long at all. There are some pictures that might give readers a better image of what is happening. But some sections can be confusing if you read them too quickly, so it's important to go over them slowly, if you find them confusing. Finally it does leave you on a little cliffhanger at the end. It leaves many questions unsolved and starts many new mysteries. Overall Nick and Tesla's High Voltage Danger Lab is a great book for those mystery science fans out there.
