This book is about a girl named Franny. She's a mad scientist. Her dog Igor is her assistant in her lab. Franny's teacher tells her students to bring a thing to school that involves their hobby. Franny's friends are not mad scientists. Franny wants everyone to be a mad scientist. When Franny drinks a potion that makes her invisible she makes a big mistake! Can Franny fix this problem? Can she make everyone a mad scientist find out all this when you read this book.

My favorite part was when she drank the potion and became invisible. I liked this part because none of her friends could make any of those potions and it would be crazy if someone was invisible. The illustrations in the book helped to explain what was going on in the book. They were black and white with lots of details.

I recommend this book to third grade through fifth grade who like to read about crazy things that might happen. This is a book from a series so if you like this book you will many others you can read too.
