Book Summary: Angus and his best buddy, Shahid, share a love of science and their robot, Gordon. Recently, the artistic Ella Eckles has had a peculiar effect on Angus. When a stink bomb incident at the school provides a chance for him to talk to her, he claims to share her interest in reading facial expressions and declares his ambition to become a crime-solving mentalist. He impresses Ella by indentifying the stink bomber, but fails to mention that he had actually witnessed the crime in progress. When Ella's treasured sketchbook is stolen, she asks Angus to find the thief. Shahid thinks Angus should fess up, but Angus is certain he can learn to read people and recover the sketchbook.
