What do a pair of kid inventors with a knack for science and electronics do when Hollywood comes to town? Why save the day, of course!

In Nick and Tesla's Special Effects Spectacular , 11-year-old siblings Nick and Tesla Holt find themselves on the set of a big-budget superhero movie. But someone's sabotaging the onscreen debut of their favorite comic book hero, so the brother and sister sleuths must crack the case with the help of a fresh assortment of homemade special-effects gadgets. This cinematic saga features instructions for all-new movie magic projects that kids can build themselves, such as camera gear, stunt dummies, make-up magic, and more. Science and electronics have never been so much fun!

Each book contains an engaging adventure revolving around a 'build-it-yourself' science project."-- Teacher Librarian
