Praise for Chronal Engine: Think Survivor and Robinson Crusoe, with a helping of Jurassic Park and a seasoning of The Time Machine.

Three friends, a private middle school and a science fair.

As the school science fair approaches, seventh grader, Elias, lives in the shadow of his older brother's legendary science fair success. Eli is also dealing with his developing romantic feelings for his good friend Honoria. Honoria is determined to train piranhas to become vegetarians for her science project and she is attracted to Shohei who is totally unaware that he is the focus of her attentions. He is frustrated by his adoptive parents' intense focus on his Japanese heritage and their overreaching attempts to make sure he remains "in touch" with his cultural background. His own interest in the science fair is minimal, so, looking for an easy way out, he teams-up with Eli. His lack of effort spells disaster for their project which in turn, has terrible consequences for Elias.

The story is told in the first person by three main characters. Elias, Honoria and Shohei are wonderfully voiced by the actors in this audio version. My one regret is that Recorded Books, who produced the book, did credit the performers who so perfectly caught the tone and point of view of the three characters.

The story is full of humor. Smith translates that strange time that is middle school / junior high with sympathy and affection.

Great fun.

This story is told in short chapters from the perspective of each of the three characters, Elias, Honoria, Shohei. The three attend the Preshtigo School in Chicago. They have been best friends for nearly as long as they can remember but now some cracks are showing in their friendships. Honoria likes Shohei, Elias likes Honoria. But that is not all their problems; Shohei has been allowed to duplicate Elias's science fair project to verify the results. But he is not holding up his end of the bargain.

This is a story with boa constrictors, piranhas, and science fairs gone awry. It is also a story about friendships, forgiveness and learning to make things right. Written in a way that will make you laugh, make you smile and maybe learn a little science along the way. It is a wonderful novel and won the Parent's Choice Gold Award. It was a great, fun read.

Elias is forced to participate in his school's science fair. Laid-back Shohei, who can best be described as a slacker, "helps" Elias (and I use that word very loosely) with his project. To understate it a bit, things do not go well. The disastrous science experiment lands Elias in school court, with Honoria acting as his defense lawyer. Honoria meanwhile has fallen in "like" --- not with the boy who likes her, but with the other one.
I love the quirky characters in Greg Leitich Smith's debut novel. Not only does the story embrace intelligence and the joy of learning, it is also funny. The thought of persuading piranhas to go on a vegetarian diet made me smile. But the overly earnest attempts made by Shohei's adoptive parents to acquaint him with his Japanese heritage (and his retaliation) had me laughing out loud.
I had some minor quibbles concerning believability (in particular, a plot point that uses bugs to negotiate with a teacher), but who cares? I'll willingly suspend belief any day to enjoy a zany, brainy romp such as this one.

The book Ninjas, Piranhas, and Galileo was an astounding book. This book had all the exciting parts down perfectly. I loved the sorrow parts. They were as bitter as bitter could get. It dragged out all of the parts that weren't all that exciting. My favorite character was Freddie M-K. She was absolutely hysterical. She gives the nickname " `Crazy' about the wilderness," a whole new meaning. Although, I thought that Mr. Eden was absolutely snobby, rude and obnoxious. He gave no consent about anything unless it has to deal with him. I think that this book is not to be read by anyone who need a book that starts off with action and lots of it. This is more of a book that gradually moves into the action area. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves an unsuspecting turn of events at the moment of truth. I would also recommend the book to anyone that has an inner sense of humor.

The characters being only friends. That's the way it started it out. For Shohei, Honoria and Elias, their lives would soon forever change. A simple science fair, supposed to be a fun little event, starts to twist their lives into unexpected ways. The book was almost had absolutely no boring parts. The adults in the book were a phenomenal part of the raging plot. This book had all the exciting parts down to the dot of action. The parts of sorrow were as bitter as bitter could get. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves an unsuspecting turn of events at the moment of truth.

(...) I finished this book in one sitting and it was one of those rare books where the story was actually as amusing as the title. While at times some of the characters and scenarios are too extreme, to me, that's half the charm of the book. So if you're looking for a funny, light-hearted quick read, then "Ninjas, Piranhas, and Galileo" might be what you're looking for. In short, humorous characters (Shohei is one of the best characters I've come across in a long time!), original setting, and unique plot make this first book by Greg Leitich Smith a keeper.
My roomate's 8th grade son picked out this book from the local library, originally for his little sister in second grade. But when I started reading, I couldn't put it down.
I found this book a very fun read. When I was reading, I was laughing all the time, The humor is alot like in the hitchhiker's guide, the 3 main characters reminded me the 3 muskerteers in Harry Potter, especially Honoria with Hormeone. I hope the author will do a series of book base on these 3 lively characters :)
Kids into science, law or Japanese culture should find lots they can related with.
Since I live in Austin, Hail! another wonderful Austin writer (if Greg do identify himself with Austin, Ha!)!
