Frank Einstein loves to tinker, build and take things apart. He loves to observe, hypothesise, experiment and invent. Frank Einstein is a kid genius who loves figuring out how the world works by creating household contraptions that are part science, part imagination and definitely unusual. After an uneventful experiment with a garage-lab artificially intelligent RoboBug, a lightning storm and a flash of electricity, Frank's inventions--the robots Klink and Klank--suddenly come to life. Not exactly the ideal lab partners, the wise-cracking Klink and the overly expressive Klank are a help nonetheless as Frank attempts to perfect his Dark Energy Drive ...that is until Frank's arch nemesis, T. Edison, steals Klink and Klank for his evil doomsday plan! With the help of his friends, Frank sets out to rescue the robots and stop T. Edison from carrying out his twisted plans!
Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor is now published in the UK by Amulet Books and sounds like a really fun read for anyone interested in science and inventions.
I'm excited to be part of this blog tour because I've had the opportunity to think about what I'd want my own robot assistant to be like, and I've even attempted to draw a picture. Here's what I came up with...
My Ideal Robot Assistant
I think it would be pretty amazing to have my own robot assistant, mostly for purely selfish reasons that would make my life easier! It would also be cool to have a friend too, kind of like droids R2-D2 and C-3PO from Star Wars.
Here are my top reasons for wanting a robot assistant:
- He would obviously have an excellent memory/general knowledge and would be an asset to our pub quiz team.
- He could set up any and all electrical equipment - I'm useless!
- He would make my sandwiches for dinner the next day. It's a job I loathe.
- He could go food shopping for me. Another job I also detest.
- He could clean the house. Need I explain that one?
- It would be like having my own personal SatNav in my car. I'm terrible when it comes to knowing where places are, so this would be very useful indeed.
- Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, he could help me sort my books out and keep them in nice orderly piles. He has four arms, after all - just what I need!
And here's what my ideal robot would look like:
