This is a fun, throwback story about a bookish kid who doesn't seem to fit in with his family's carny-theater act. Then, Albert Einstein (randomly) shows up at one of the family's acts, and befriends young Lorenzo after the show. The rest is a pretty standard "don't know what you've got 'til it's gone" storyline (well, standard except for Einstein and a bunch of mutant space cows). A strange but cute book.
Starring Lorenzo and Einstein Too was cute enough, and it might really speak to a kid who is a bit different, or who feels like he or she doesn't quite fit in. This barely registered as a blip on my niece and nephew's radar, however. Although, they were impressed that Lorenzo was smart enough to build his own spaceship, and really, that *is* pretty cool.
