When Larry Hench became a grandfather, he started looking for books to read to his grandchildren that taught science concepts in a fun and interesting way, without talking down, through stories that were realistic fairytale-like. He couldn't find them; he was also dismayed to see scientists, professors, and engineers portrayed as evil, nutty, nerdy, absent-minded, etc and not as real, caring, helpful human beings.

Larry wanted children to see the excitement and process of science, and scientists and engineers as trustworthy, interesting, and fun people. So he decided to write his own stories to accomplish these goals. Enter Boing-Boing!

Boing-Boing the Bionic Cat is made mostly of ceramic parts, he's a perfect fit!

The plot synopsis of the book is as follows : Daniel, who loves cats but is allergic to them, is delighted when his inventive neighbor Professor Georgeuan engineeru builds him a bionic cat with fiber-optic fur, computer-controlled joints, electronic eyes, and ceramic-sensor whiskers.

It's just like a real cat, but Daniel is not allergic to it!
