    This book is a great book! My favorite part was when Manny (Billy the main characters best friend) told Billy that he was actually the one that made the blue prints. What I mean by this is that in the book, one of Billy’s inventions was the All Ball that can almost transform into any type of sports ball. When one night Billy fell asleep, the next morning there was a set of blue prints of the All Ball. Of course Billy did not know who made the blue prints. When Billy and Manny were making another invention, they put an alarm so the person that made the blue print can trip over a wire and then the alarm will shout. When Billy went to bed, in the middle of the night the alarm shouted. There was a set of blue prints of the Sibling Silencer on the desk. When Billy looked in the room there was nobody but Philo and himself. Philo was in the middle of the room awake. The next morning Manny told Billy that he did it himself. Manny had set a camera (Manny was also there) while Billy was concentrating on putting the alarm in.

            I want to read this book because I have never read a book about a child genius to the extent that he\she owns their own business. The All Ball sounds amazing! Hopefully that is made sometime this century. I want to read about Billy's everyday life and how busy his life could be. I also want to read about this secret that he is keeping. This book seems really cool and interesting.

              Billy Sure created the All-Ball, and made a lot off it. He is looking for his next invention, so he sends word out all across the globe that he is holding a contest; his newest invention. He, Manny, and Emily sort through videos of kids with ideas. They find one that is called the "Sibling Silencer". It does what the name suggests. With Billy's knowledge and Manny's money skills, they make the Sibling Silencer real!
