Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jon Scieszka, Brian Biggs

Children Ages 8+ • 2.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Listener alert! Author and narrator Jon Scieszka will have you laughing out loud. When boy scientist Frank Einstein sets out to make a smart robot, hoping to win the Midville Science Prize and get his family out of debt, neither T. Edison nor drones nor clueless parents can stop him. Aided by Smartbots Klink and Klank and Grandpa Al, Einstein creates a smashing entry and also outsmarts his archenemy. The duo of Scieszka and Brian Biggs narrates with aplomb. Characters pop with personality as each narrator uses his vocal talents to create an ebullient and persevering Einstein, an ever optimistic and wise grandfather, and a too-big-for-his britches T. Edison. Not only is the wordplay droll, but the robot voices are animated to perfection. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2014]
