Frankie Dupont and the Science Fair Sabotage

frankie image 3

This is the third book in the Frankie Dupont series, I know Julie Anne Grasso, the author’s writing style, I know the main characters and I know the general theme of the books. Therefore, I was surprised at what a page-turner book 3, Frankie Dupont and the Science Fair Sabotage is.

I really thought my detective skills were improving with each book, but I could not guess the answer, and for me I am always trying to solve crime novels before the ending, even predicting twists.

I’m glad my children are too young to read the Frankie Dupont series to them, as I would have kept them up all night wanting to find out who was the culprit in the Science Fair Sabotage.

Julie Anne Grasso has a talent for writing mysteries. Frankie Dupont is the main character, an 11 year old private investigator. In previous books he has solved the Mystery at Enderby Manor and a Lemon Festival Fiasco. This time there are a lot more suspects at the Science Fair and to try to find the person who sabotaged a competitor’s entry Frankie has to use a range of detective skills.

Once again educationally there are many activities which children can delve into before, during and after the reading of Frankie Dupont and the Science Fair Sabotage.

A Teacher Resource Booklet has been created with 10 activities relating to Frankie Dupont and the Science Fair Sabotage and linked to the Australian Curriculum for free download.

I don’t want to choose favourites between the three books but if someone was twisting my arm and I had to, then Frankie Dupont and the Science Fair Sabotage would be a smidgen in front.
