The first in the Secret Smithsonian Adventures series is called The Wrong Wrights. Written by Chris Kientz and Steve Hockensmith and illustrated by Lee Nielsen, the book is about a group of kids on a visit to the museum.
“With the help of a museum ‘fabrications specialist,’ they travel through time to try and restore the Wright brothers to their well-earned place in history,” explains the website. “Along the way they also learn about aerodynamics and other aviation principles from a wise-cracking computer named Smitty.”
The title, which is aimed at middle school readers, drops on Feb. 23.
