“Grdankl the Strong, president of Kprshtskan, is plotting to take over the American government. His plan is to infiltrate the science fair at Hubble Middle School, located in a Maryland suburb just outside Washington. The rich kids at Hubble cheat by buying their projects every year, and Grdankl's cronies should have no problem selling them his government-corrupting software. But this year, Toby Harbinger, a regular kid with Discount Warehouse shoes, is determined to win the $5,000 prize-even if he has to go up against terrorists to do it. With the help of his best friends, Tamara and Micah, Toby takes on Assistant Principal Paul Parmit, aka "The Armpit", a laser-eyed stuffed owl, and two eBay buyers named Darth and the Wookiee who seem to think that the Harrison-Ford-signed BlasTech DL-44 blaster Toby sold them is a counterfeit. The bestselling
Peter and the Starcatchers duo is back with Science Fair (Disney/Hyperion, $18.99, ages 9+)! Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson now set their sights on a rogue nation, a terrorist plot and of course, levitating frogs and the Wienermobile.”

As always, we’ll be there so don’t forget to stop by and say hi!

P.S. We’re working on an epic-ly long recap of John Green’s event last night. It’ll be up shortly since we’re having such a hard time cramming so much awesome into one post.
