Frank Einstein looks into the fire. “I don’t think he is T. Edison’s chimp anymore. If he ever was.” Frank taps the fire-pit rocks with his own stick. Frank Einstein and the bio-action gizmo by Jon Scieszka, 2017 edition, sound recording / in English - Unabridged.
But there is no explaining how the kid with the big boots and bad haircut got himself super-wedgied, spanked, and tied to a tree with all that knotted rope.
And he won’t talk about it.
Dusk in the far-northern end of the Midville preserve.
Earth, as always, spins on its axis, revolves around the sun.
The setting sun lights a nest of roughly woven branches high in a young oak tree.
In the nest, a dark-furred animal crouches over an invention.
Its long fingers pick and weave and twist and knot.
The animal finishes.
It holds its work up in the last light of the sun for inspection.
It is a bag.
A knotted rope bag.
A reusable, recycled, world-changing rope bag.
The animal looks over its shoulder at the first star of the evening just above the western horizon.
The animal thinks about the star, about its own star—the Sun, about the universe.
The animal decides . . .
Watson pokes a stick in the fire they have built behind Grampa Al’s barn. A bright shower of orange sparks spirals up into the starry night.
“I never would have thought, in a million years, that we would ever be helped . . . not to mention saved . . . by T. Edison’s chimp!”
Frank Einstein looks into the fire. “I don’t think he is T. Edison’s chimp anymore. If he ever was.” Frank taps the fire-pit rocks with his own stick. “I wonder what happened? And what he might be up to?”
Klank hums, “He might just want to be a chimpanzee.”
Klink adds, “Or the chimpanzee King of the World.”
Frank leans back and looks up at all the stars spread across the inky blue sky. He spots the brightest light, low on the western horizon. The planet Venus. Sometimes called the evening star.
“Wooowwww. What a sight. It’s got me thinking. . .?”
Watson sits up. “No. We do not want to know what it’s got you thinking. Because what you are thinking is probably just another way to get us almost killed! Again.”
“What . . .” says Frank. “I was just thinking about our amazing planet. And how amazing other planets are. And that all the planets make our amazing solar system. And all those solar systems make galaxies. And all those galaxies—”
“That is true,” confirms Klink. He pounds his hammer and reports, “This planet you call Earth is located in the Sol Solar System . . . of the Milky Way Galaxy . . . of the Local Group of Galaxies . . . of the Virgo Supercluster . . . of the Known Universe.”
Frank points his stick toward their makeshift Wall of Science in the bam. “All making our final subject, our last column. . .”
Frank stirs the fire and sends up another wild spray of orange sparks. “Are you with me?”
“No,” says Watson. “Absolutely not.”
“Interesting,” says Klink.
Klank looks uncomfortable. “Watson, would you please pull my finger?”
Watson, still worried about Frank’s next idea, not thinking, pulls Klank’s finger. And releases a loud blatttt of built-up gas.
Watson holds his nose. “Awwwwwwwww man!”
“Great!” says Frank Einstein. “I’ll take that as three yeses.”
Watson rolls around on the ground.
“Sorry,” says Klank.
“OK, first we fix Klank. . ..
“And then we explore . . . the universe.”
WATSON’S FAVORITE ACRONYMS (AND INITIALISMS)
An ACRONYM is a word made by taking the initial letters (or groups of letters) in a series of words. . . and pronouncing them as a new word.

GRAMPA ALS SHRINK YOUR PLASTIC FOOTPRINT
Most of us don’t know how much plastic we use and throw away. But we do know that it should be a lot less.
So here is what we can all do:
• Figure out how much plastic you use and throw away.
• Use less, and you throw away less.
• Get a notebook.
• Make a record of how much plastic you use and throw away in a day.
• Keep this record for a week.
• Look for ways you can use less plastic.
• Carry a reusable bag.
• Don’t buy plastic individual water bottles.
• Don’t use straws.
• Don’t use plastic cups, utensils, or take-out containers.
• Recycle the plastic you do use.
• Follow the U.S. EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) slogan: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
• Look into online groups such as Plastic Bank, 5 Gyres, Ocean Conservancy, Life Without Plastic, Plastic-Free Tuesday, and Plastic Pollutes.
• Save the world.
FRANK EINSTEIN’S MAKE YOUR OWN BIO-ACTION GIZMO
1 hank of cotton clothesline
1 ball of string
KNOTS TO USE
Lark’s Head Knot
1. Cut a section of clothesline about eight feet long. This is going to be the top of your bag and its two handles.
2. Cut sixteen sections of string, each four feet long.
3. Lay clothesline (rope) across a table. Weight or tie down ends.
4. Double each length of string.
Start six inches in from one end of your rope. Loop each of the sixteen doubled strings onto the rope with a Lark’s Head Knot. Place them about one-and-a-half inches apart.
5. Beginning with the second and third string, tie an overhand knot about two-and-a-half inches down from the rope.
6. Tie the same overhand knot with the next two strings.
7. And the next two.
8. And the next two.
9. When you get to the last string, go back to the first two strings, go down another one-and-a-half inches, and tie another overhand knot.
10. Repeat, repeat, repeat. . . until you have a whole net hanging from your rope.
11. Tie an overhand knot in the end of your rope (this is to stop your next knot from slipping off the end).
12. Make the loop for the opening of your B.A.G. by forming a circle with the loose end of the rope.
Tie it off with your Lark’s Head Knot.
13. Complete the circle by tying the last untied string to the first string using overhand knots.
14. Make one handle by looping the rope back to the other side of the circle. Tie it there with another Lark’s Head Knot.< />
15. Make the second handle by tying the rope next to your first end knot. Using, guess what knot? That’s right, the Lark’s Head.
16. Tie off all of the hanging ends of the string together with any kind of knots you like in order to secure the bottom of your B.A.G.
17. Use your BIO-ACTION GIZMO wherever you go.
Congratulate yourself for being part of the solution. Feel good about helping save our planet.
LUMPY THE LUMP OF COAL “FOSSIL FUELS ARE COOL!” RAP
My name is Lumpy, the Lump of Coal, And spreading the cool word about fossil fuels is my goal.
Coal, oil, and gas. . . are called fossil fuels, Because they were made in the days before dinosaurs had duels.
We burn fossil fuels to make electricity and power, For the lights and heat and cars and stuff we use every hour.
Once you use fossil fuels, they are no longer doable Which is why this energy source is called “nonrenewable.”
You might have heard noise about fossil fuels’greenhouse effect. But just look around—our planet’s not wrecked!
So if you want the cool power of millions of horses Dig coal, oil, and gas—our dope fresh energy sources.
T. EDISON’S TOTALLY NOT-STOLEN INVENTIONS FROM HIS NOTEBOOK
• BUILD TWO ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ROBOTS.
Use parts around the shop.
Wire electronic brains so they can teach themselves.
• MAKE ANTI-MATTER COMBUSTION ENGINE.
Use energy created by combination of Matter and Antimatter.
Use it as a motor for bike.
• INVENT A PHONE THAT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE PLUGGED IN.
Maybe call it the Edison Self Phone.
• DELIVERY SYSTEM FOR WIRELESS POWER.
Like lightning, static electricity from tip of finger . . .
Call it the Edison Electro-Hand.
• SOMETHING TO TURBO-BOOST BRAINWAVES.
Oh yes, something like a baseball cap. With a Brainwave Turbo.
Call it the Edison BrainWaver.
• A GLASS BULB THAT CAN PRODUCE LIGHT.
Make a tiny wire that can be heated with electricity to glow.
Surround it with a glass bulb.
We should call it the Edison Light Bulb.
• SOME KIND OF DEVICE TO SPEED UP EVOLUTION. FORWARD AND BACKWARD.
Crosswire a DNA splitter/rezipper into something like, oh, I don’t know, a championship wrestling belt. Use it to hop around the evolutionary Circle of Life. Edison EvoBomber Belt would be a great name.

Download or read book entitled Frank Einstein and the Bio-Action Gizmo (Frank Einstein Series #5) written by Jon Scieszka and published by Unknown online. This book was released on 02 May 2017 with total pages 208. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: More clever science experiments, funny jokes, and robot hijinks await readers in book five of the 'New York Times' bestselling Frank Einstein chapter book series from the mad scientist team of Jon Scieszka and Brian Biggs. The perfect combination to engage and entertain readers, the series features real science facts with adventure and humor, making these books ideal for STEM education. This latest installment examines the science and mysteries of planet Earth! Kid-genius and inventor Frank Einstein loves figuring out how the world works by creating household contraptions that are part science, part imagination, and definitely unusual. In the series opener, an uneventful experiment involving a lightning storm and a flash of electricity brings Frank s inventions the robots Klink and Klank to life! Not exactly the ideal lab partners, the wisecracking Klink and the overly expressive Klank nonetheless help Frank attempt to perfect his inventions. In the fifth book in the series, Frank along with his best friend, Watson, and Klink and Klank once again finds himself in competition with his classmate and archrival T. Edison and his sign-language-speaking sidekick, Mr. Chimp, over Frank s newest invention: the Bio-Action Gizmo. Integrating real science facts with wacky humor, a silly cast of characters, and science fiction, this uniquely engaging series is an irresistible chemical reaction for middle-grade readers. With easy-to-read language and graphic illustrations on almost every page, this chapter book series is a must for reluctant readers. The Frank Einstein series encourages middle-grade readers to question the way things work and to discover how they, too, can experiment with science. In a starred review, 'Kirkus Reviews' raves, This buoyant, tongue-in-cheek celebration of the impulse to keep asking questions and finding your own answers fires on all cylinders, while 'Publishers Weekly' says that the series proves that science can be as fun as it is important and useful. Read all the books in the 'New York Times' bestselling Frank Einstein series: 'Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor' (Book 1), 'Frank Einstein and the Electro-Finger' (Book 2), 'Frank Einstein and the BrainTurbo' (Book 3), 'Frank Einstein and the EvoBlaster Belt' (Book 4), and 'Frank Einstein and the Bio-Action Gizmo' (Book 5).
