Frantastic Voyage (Franny K. Stein, Mad Scientist, #5)
Frantastic Voyage

Series: Franny K. Stein #5
Publisher: Scholastic
Release Date: 2006
Source: Library

Franny's faithful lab assistant, Igor, has swallowed a doomsday device that is ready to go off at any moment! For any regular scientist, there is only one way to get the device out -- um...make that two ways.
But Franny K. Stein is no ordinary scientist, so she concocts her own way to get the device back and save her friend. With her miniaturization machine, Franny shrinks herself to the size of a pin and goes on a field trip like no other...through the body of a ticking time-dog! Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy ride!

What I thought about it…

This book is about a little girl named Franny K. Stein. I think this book is amazing because there are so many different creations Franny makes. I think Franny is an amazing scientist. I think Igor, Franny’s dog, is a good part of the book. I think Igor is a big trouble maker that always gives Franny a lot to do. I think the author, Jim Benton, did a great job on this series.

Why I picked this book…

I picked this book because I have read the other books and I think they are amazing! I wanted to make sure I read the whole series. I also like all the artwork.


What I liked about this story…

I love that even though Franny is a mad scientist and a kid she is still super cool and works out problems to save the world.

Would I recommend other kids read this book?

Yes! I would recommend the whole Fanny K. Stein series. I think anyone can enjoy this series. I am trying to get my mom to read it now!

See you next time,
5 Moons: Because it’s awesome.
