Super-smart Julian Calendar thinks starting junior high at a new school will mean he can shed his nerdy image-but then he meets Ben and Greta, two secret scientists like himself! The three form a secret club, complete with a high-tech lair. There, they can work to their hearts content on projects like the Stink-O-Meter, the Kablovsky Copter, and the Nightsneak Goggles.

All that tinkering comes in handy when the trio discovers an evil scientist’s dastardly plan to rob a museum. Can three inventors, armed with their wacky creations, hope to defeat this criminal mastermind?

“With its frenetically eye-catching, full-color panels chock-full of humorous and informative detail, Davis’s graphic adventure of the SSA pumps new life into the kids’-secret-society formula. With its bounty of factlets slipped in for learning on the sly, it’s a sure kid and teacher pleaser-a perfect package for tweens.” – Kirkus Reviews – Starred review
