Benjamin Franklinstein Lives!
He does find Victor, whose mother owns the house where Franklin has been "sleeping" in a secret subbasement for all these years. Victor loves science,but he also loves perfection. He can calculate odds and risk factors based on past experiments to create a science project with a 97% chance of winning the science fair, but this new friend will challenge all his assumptions.
With a mix of science, guesswork, humor, and happy accidents, Victor and Ben will make amazing discoveries, figure out a way to keep Franklin from turning into an starved electro-zombie, and learn that science is all about risk.
This books is filled with illustrations and charts that are part science and part science fiction. It's a fun mix of monster movie, science fiction, and American history. Check out the website here!
