Great mystery and great inventions!

"While spending the summer with their quirky inventor uncle, twin brother and sister Nick and Tesla are caught up in a bizarre mystery surrounding a spooky, rottweiler-guarded mansion. To get inside the mansion and uncover the truth, the siblings create lots of clever gadgets (like an alarm made from Christmas lights and a "robocat" fuelled by mints and soda) - and each awesome invention is accompanied by illustrated instructions so that you can build them yourself!"

couldn't put this book down! Excellent adventure story of brother an sister twins that go to stay with absent minded professor of an uncle. Nicely done and a pleasant surprise. Mysterious with good pacing. It also includes science experiments that you can do yourself.
