Product Description

**#1 KINDLE (US) BESTSELLER IN CHILDREN'S CHAPTER BOOKS (SEPT. 2013)**
 
Timothy Tolliver and his friend Arnie Rosenberg have a problem -- a gang of older bullies called the Stinks. But besides being a fourth-grader, Timothy is also a world-class inventor. He and Arnie get the bright idea of defending themselves with Timothy's science-project robot.
 
When their first try fails, Timothy finds a way to update the mystical formulas that gave life to the Jewish clay monster, the Golem. The robot comes alive, and it looks like their worries are over -- till the robot stops following orders and takes matters into its own hands.
 
Can Timothy bring his creation back under control? Find out, as the Golem legend replays in a modern American elementary school.
