Billy Bobble Makes a Magic Wand by R.S. Mellette


Book Description: “E = mc2 is no longer the most powerful force in the universe. Your wand is.” Twelve-year-old Billy Bobble and his best friend Suzy Quinofski didn’t mean to change the universe. Billy, a quantum physics prodigy, just wanted to find a way to help his hoarding, schizophrenic mother – and maybe impress a coven of older girls in high school. Suzy, his intellectual equal, wanted to help her friend and cling to her last remnant of childhood, a belief in magic. Together they made Billy a real, working, magic wand, and opened a door to the Quantum World where thoughts create reality, and all things – good and bad – are possible.

If you have a child that likes science experiments, inventing things and adventure than they'll love Billy Bobble.  Right off the bat we lose the main character in the story, but never fear he does reappear or we wouldn't have a story would we.  I would highly recommend this book for 4-6 graders.  It is fun and entertaining.  It was on my list for my summer school reading class as a choice for whole class read-aloud.  Very much loved by all.
