Review...filled with spirit of adventure and good-natured fun... In fact, Henry Mulligan, chief Mad Scientist, reminds me of me! -- Homer Hickam, Author of October SkyFor better or worse (better, I think) the Mad Scientists' Club was a major influence in my youth. -- Glenn H. Reynolds -- InstaPundit.com, October 11, 2004Fun and gentle, the books paint a picture of a more innocent boyhood where scientific know-how could save the day. -- USA TODAY, December 3, 2002When I was a kid, some of my favourite books were about young geniuses. ...I loved Bertrand Brinley's Mad Scientists -- Kenneth Oppel, author of Barnes & the Brains series, Silverwing seriesTimeless and entertaining, The Mad Scientists' Club is a fun read and top pick. --Midwest Book Review Product DescriptionThe boys are back after 40 years! Author's Edition with previously unpublished text restored from the original manuscripts. A strange sea monster appears on the lake ...a fortune is unearthed from an old cannon ...a valuable dinosaur egg is stolen. Watch out as the Mad Scientists turn Mammoth Falls upside down! Take seven, lively, "normal" boys -- one an inventive genius -- give them a clubhouse for cooking up ideas, an electronics lab above the town hardware store, and a good supply of Army surplus equipment, and you, dear reader, have a boyhood dream come true and a situation that bears watching. In the hands of an author whose own work involved technological pioneering, the proceedings are well worth undivided attention, as the boys explore every conceivable possibility for high and happy adventure in the neighborhood of Mammoth Falls. To the unutterable confusion of the local dignitaries -- and the unalloyed delight of Bertrand Brinley's fans -- the young heroes not only outwit their insidious rival, Harmon Muldoon, but emerge as town heroes. Here, captured under one cover, are the fun-filled escapades of the young scientists whose exciting capers debuted in Boys' Life magazine 40 years ago.

Review...filled with spirit of adventure and good-natured fun... In fact, Henry Mulligan, chief Mad Scientist, reminds me of me! -- Homer Hickam, Author of October Sky...this reissue ...reintroduces a brotherhood of boy geniuses with a penchant for electronic crime detection and advanced rocketry. -- Notable Books for Children 2002, Smithsonian Magazine, December, 2002For better or worse (better, I think) the Mad Scientists' Club was a major influence in my youth. -- Glenn H. Reynolds -- InstaPundit.com, October 11, 2004Product DescriptionTake cover! The mad, mad, Mad Scientists' Club of Mammoth Falls is back in action. Since the publication of the Bertand Brinley's first book, THE MAD SCIENTISTS' CLUB, strange things have been happening. Mad Scientists' clubs have sprouted up, kids and grownups alike have been eagerly reading these incredible adventures, and the persistent, popular demand has been for more adventures! So our seven young scientists, complete with clubhouse, electronic gear and wild, weird schemes are back again with flying saucers, electronic crime detection, seismographs, rockets, weather control, submarines (for real!) and well, you won't believe it until you read it. Too bad the good and stalwart citizens of Mammoth Falls, university professors, the Air Force and even the Pentagon are sometimes unappreciative of our heroic, creative little group. But then, they were never real scientific geniuses like us, either.
