Zane has made an enemy for life in the evil scientist Dr. Gristle. Not only is Gristle angry at the damage Zane has done to his reputation, he's also extraordinarily jealous of Zane's ability to use technology to talk to animals. The result? Gristle is working on a new device to control animals' movement and speech — and Zane's dog is one of the first test cases! It's up to Zane to unwire the animals...and defeat Dr. Gristle once and for all. With an eye for the future and many laughs in the present, Chris Lynch has created another animal adventure sure to appeal to middle-grade readers everywhere.
