Kids say (2 ):

Witty, action-packed, and full of real scientific concepts, the second Max Einstein book keeps the series' momentum going. There's no time to waste and no end to the adventure in Max Einstein: Rebels with a Cause, and the plot's focus on making water safe and accessible adds a real-world urgency to the problems Max and her friends face. Authors James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein have taken an issue that most young readers are familiar with -- water -- and use science, technology, and imagination to find solutions that fit a variety of problems. Like the first Max Einstein book, these pages drive home the ideas that everyone has a talent and that there are many ways to solve a problem. Readers will likely identify with the sense of urgency Max and her friends feel and their need to solve local problems that have global impact.
