Books: Nick and Tesla's High-Voltage Danger Lab by ‘Science Bob’ Pflugfelder & Steve Hockensmith (Age: 10+ Years)
Nick and Tesla Holt, two 11-year-old twin siblings, have a knack for science and electronics. After their parents mysteriously vanish, they go to live with their uncle who is a brilliant inventor. While the two have constant arguments, they also have powerful minds that work only when put together.

At their uncle’s house, they notice strange things and begin to unravel mysteries. They create a lab to build electromagnets, a robocat, a bottle rocket launcher and many more such contraptions that help them uncover secrets lurking in their neighbourhood. The book carries a step-by-step instruction manual that will help the reader build everything the siblings do. It also comes with illustrations and fun facts.
