Nick and Tesla’s Special Effects Spectacular: A Mystery with Animatronics, Alien Makeup, Camera Gear, and Other Movie Magic You Can Make Yourself!
Nick and Tesla are brother and sister. They are spending the summer with Uncle Newt. (What a name!) Their mom and dad are lost, which is sad. Their uncle has something that explodes downstairs. Their friend, Silas, is making a movie about Bald Eagle, a superhero played by a dummy. Bald Eagle is fighting aliens. Nick and Tesla invent stuff for the movie. (The book has instructions for a camera stabilizer, a robot arm, a stunt dummy, alien makeup, and a grappling hook. I want to make the grappling hook the most.) Their friend DeMarco’s aunt works on a movie. There’s a mystery on the movie set. There’s itching powder inside the Metalman armor. Will Nick and Tesla solve the mystery? Read the book to find out. I liked the book. I give it six stars!! It is a funny book. Oh yeah, I’m Bald Eagle, and I’m saving the world on my head. I don’t have a favorite part. All of them are awesome! I haven’t made any of the projects yet, but soon I will! I’ll read other Nick and Tesla books. I think I can read this book myself a little bit. There are some long words like “pontificated.” I learned about P.A.s, cameras, and movie making.
