It takes a lot to stand out at school for mad scientistsbut Newton Riddell is unlike anyone (or anything) else at Franken-Sci High in this first book in a wacky series created with The Jim Henson Company.

Franken-Sci High is the only school in the world for aspiring mad scientists and its located on a craggy island in the Bermuda Triangle, of course! While some mad scientists are power-hungry maniacs, the school was founded in 1536 as a refuge for generations of brilliantand yes, eccentricyoung minds. Students are encouraged to use their brainpower for good, but the teachers accept that some kids will still want to take over the worldand the school cafeteria.

In the first book in the series, Whats the Matter with Newton?, Newton Riddell is a mystery, even to himself: He wakes up one day in the library with no idea of who he is, how he got there, or where he came from. Newton is quickly assigned to a dorm and makes a friend: Shelly Ravenholt, who creates living, breathing monsters for fun. Hes eager to find out who his family is, but this is high school after all, and he soon has other problems: Newton has to create a last-minute project for the Mad Science Fair and Shellys friend Theremin (a robot) is really jealous of him. And thats not all: the other students at Franken-Sci High soon realize that Newton has a few useful, but surprising quirks. Wherever Newton came from, they start to suspect that hes not entirely human!
