Synopsis- Frankie Dupont, Junior-Investigator-In-Training, was going to a local science fair, when he learns that a friend’s brothers’ project was sabotaged! Their robot’s robotic chip was stolen! Can Frankie find the thief before the show starts and the two twins get disqualified?

What I Thought- I really like this series. Ms. Grasso writes these mysteries really well. She adds just enough clues so that the reader is solving the mystery along with Frankie. There is a good amount of humor in this book. For example, I was literally laughing out loud when Frankie decided that a person wasn’t lying, because, when people lie, their eyes go up and to the right, but one character was definitely telling the truth because their eyes went up and to the left. There are cool illustrations throughout the book that add a lot to the story. The stories are great for young kids looking for a good mystery. The story flows well and it gets the reader involved. I really like this series and the Frankie Dupont character. I can’t wait to read more!

I give this book five out of five bookworms!fivebooks

  1. First of all, super excited that I finally have my own gravatar so I can comment on your blog – LOL – I’ll be catching up now.
    Second of all – Julie’s books are lovely, aren’t they. What a great detail to point out about the eyes. I actually believe I need to read this one. Congratulations, Julie on another great review!
    (This is Cool Mom’s new account). 🙂

  2. Thank you once again Erik, for taking the time for Frankie.

  3. I’m sure the doggie on the cover saves the day and finds the chip, but you forgot to mention him in your review. (Once I found a potato chip under the snow. It was delicious, plus soggy)

    Love and licks,

  4. Good review, Erik. I enjoyed this one too. You’ve reminded me that i need to post my review.

  5. I am having a problem with reading harry potter books. I am stuck in the world of percy jackson and now am starting to want to read harry potter but it seems very different 🙁

    • I think the reason they seem so different is because they are very different. Please note that, unlike Percy Jackson, as Harry gets older, the story gets for more mature readers, and it deals with harder topics. Good luck! 😀

  6. Sounds like a lot of fun, Erik.

  7. This is a great series!

  8. Nice review, Erik! It’s good to be back from vacation and catching up with all my favorite bloggers!

  9. I love this new book and the Frankie Dupont series. Julie does a great job keeping us readers interested right to the end.
