Teaser Tuesday: Nick and Tesla's Secret Agent Gadget Battle by Bob Pflugfelder and Steve Hockensmith

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"I don't know," Tesla said. "Doesn't it seem a bit too obvious? The guy might as well have a neon sign around his neck flashing Spy! Spy! Spy!"

"So you don't think he's a spy because he seems too much like a spy?"
This week my teaser comes from Nick and Tesla's Secret Agent Gadget Battle by Bob Pflugfelder and Steve Hockensmith. It is the third Nick and Tesla book. This are middle grade mysteries that also infuse a lot of science into the story. They include experiments that the reader can make (with adult supervision.)

Here is the description of this May 6 release:
After foiling a gang of kidnappers and fending off an army of robots, 11-year-old siblings Nick and Tesla Holt could use a little rest! But as their third mystery opens, they discover there’s a spy in their midst, searching for secrets in the home of their beloved (and slightly crazy) Uncle Newt. Is it the new laboratory assistant? The exterminator? The housekeepers? Or someone completely unexpected? To expose the mystery agent, Nick and Tesla must engineer all kinds of outrageous contraptions, from code wheels and fingerprint powder to spy cameras and burglar detectors. Best of all, instructions are included throughout the story, so you can build the projects, too!
