9781619638402: The Genius Factor: How to Capture an Invisible Cat

Every Friday the 13th, 6th grade genius and inventor extraordinaire Nate Bannister does three not-so-smart things to keep life interesting. This time, he taught a caterpillar math, mailed a love letter, and super-sized his cat Proton before turning him invisible.

As Nate and his new (well, only) friend Delphine race to stop Proton from crushing everyone and everything in town, they come face-to-face with Sir Jakob Maculte (the twenty-seventh lord of Mayberry Castle and leader of the nefarious Red Death Tea Society). Known for its criminal activity, killer tactics, and impressive tea brewing skills, the Red Death Tea Society will do anything to get in their way.

Nate and Delphine must pull out every mind-blowing gadget, half-perfected invention, and unproven but theoretically sound strategy they've got up their sleeves in order to survive to see Saturday the 14th!

Eisner winner Paul Tobin's extraordinarily madcap middle grade debut features black and white illustrations from film talent Thierry Lafontaine and is the first of five novels in the series.

About the Author:

Paul Tobin lives in Portland, Oregon, and is the Eisner-award-winning author of a multitude of comics for such publishers as Marvel, Dark Horse, DC Comics, Top Shelf, Fantagraphics, as well as the novel Prepare to Die!, which earned a starred review from Publishers Weekly. Most recently, Paul and his wife, artist Colleen Coover, won the Eisner Award for their ongoing series Bandette, which also placed on YALSA's 2014 "Best Graphic Novels for Teens" list.

Paul is one of the two head writers for the Angry Birds comics, and is also writing episodes for the upcoming season of Angry Birds cartoon shorts. (He further rounds out his domination of iPhone games by writing the Plants vs. Zombies comics.) His other current projects include the Adventure Time: Flip Side series, combining the worlds of Prometheus/Aliens/Predator in conjunction with Dark Horse Comics/Ridley Scott, and continuing work on his award-winning horror series Colder, which is up for a Bram Stoker award.

Review:

"Middle grade readers, future inventors, and adventure-seekers will enjoy Nate and Delphine's encounters in this The Genius Factor title. Recommended." - School Library Connection

"This odd couple prove that teamwork works, and news of a sequel will likely be met with applause." - Booklist

"Aimed equally at boys and girls . . . This winning, consistently funny, smartly silly adventure could be one of Nate's kooky gadgets, a middle-grade reading attractor." ―Kirkus Reviews

"Tobin uses humor and great imagination to offer younger middle grade readers a delightful romp that will appeal to fans of madcap adventure . . . . Ideal for book clubs. The easy flow of dialogue and vocabulary will help build fluency and keep readers’ attention." ―School Library Journal
