Attack of the 50-Ft. Cupid (Franny K. Stein, Mad Scientist)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Franny's mom says every mad scientist needs a lab assistant. So for Valentine's Day Franny gets just that -- a Lab assistant. Except Igor isn't a pure Lab. He's also part poodle, part Chihuahua, part beagle, part spaniel, part shepherd -- and all thumbs.

And things get even worse when a giant, fifty-foot, arrow-shooting cupid starts causing trouble all over town. Franny knows it's up to her -- and only her -- to save the day. Or is it?

CHAPTER TEN WORKING LIKE A DOG Late that night Franny sat at her desk staring at the Cupid card. She still had a lot of work to do if she was going to get cards for everyone done on time, but her

Cupid landed at the end of Daffodil Street and stomped toward the stopped bus. He had an arrow all ready to go. This looked like the end. Franny’s head was spinning. She dragged herself in front of the bus and glowered defiantly. Cupid pulled back on the arrow and again took aim . . . . . . just as a mouthful of craggy,

But that’s how mad science works.” “Okay, but I just thought you might like to meet your new lab assistant.” “A lab assistant?” Franny said, totally forgetting about the sock experiment.
