Franny's mom says every mad scientist needs a lab assistant. So for Valentine's Day Franny gets just that -- a Lab assistant. Except Igor isn't a pure Lab. He's also part poodle, part Chihuahua, part beagle, part spaniel, part shepherd -- and all thumbs.
Franny is fuming. She doesn't even need an assistant. What's she supposed to do with a good-for-nothing one like Igor?
And things get even worse when a giant, fifty-foot, arrow-shooting cupid starts causing trouble all over town. Franny knows it's up to her -- and only her -- to save the day. Or is it?

What I thought about it
Why I picked this book…
I picked this book because my friends had told me that they all liked the Franny K. Stein series and I was excited to see we had this one in my school library.
What I like about the characters…
First, I really like Franny because because she is an evil scientist. But everything she creates ends up going wrong in some way it is a lot of fun to see how she gets out of trouble. I also like Franny’s assistant, Igor. Igor is funny, always in Franny’s way, and always getting into trouble.
My favorite part of the story…
My favorite part of the story was when Franny drew the cupid. Franny’s version was not the normal valentine cupid but her mad scientist one.  Her drawing was a goblin with wings that was naked (LOL) with a diaper on. I liked this so much because it was so funny, I am still laughing about it.
Will I continue reading this series?
Yes! I already have a different Franny K. Stein book that I got at the library that I am reading nowSmile
Have fun reading,

I give this 5 moons because I enjoyed everything about the book.
