Franken-Sci High! A new book series for older kids from The Jim Henson Company and creator Mark Young
Franken-Sci High is the only school in the world for aspiring mad scientists and it’s located on a craggy island in the Bermuda Triangle, of course! While some mad scientists are power-hungry maniacs, the school was founded as a refuge for generations of brilliant—and sometimes quirky—young minds. Students are encouraged to use their brainpower for good, but the teachers accept that some kids will still want to take over the world…and the school cafeteria.
To celebrate the release of the 5th book in the frighteningly fun series, the Honorary Dean and creator of @frankenscihigh, Mark Young tells us all about the first school for mad scientists.

The science at Franken-Sci High gets even madder in this fifth book in a wacky series created with the Jim Henson Company.
There’s a school field trip coming up, and most Franken-Sci High students can’t wait to venture off the school campus. But Newton Warp’s roommate, H.G. “Higgy” Vollington, only wants to go if he can find a way to look human. Higgy usually flaunts the green goo he is made of, but when he lived out in the real world, regular people always stared at him. Newton, Shelly, and Theremin try various ways of making him less green, but nothing works. They need to go to the enemy for help: Mimi Crowninshield is a genius when it comes to inventing creepily-realistic cosmetics. She agrees to help Higgy if the friends tell her Newton’s big secret. Newton doesn’t know the answer to the mystery of where he came from, but now he has more reason than ever to figure it out!
