"Preschoolers will love the nonsense of the contraptions, beautifully captured in the sound and the rhythm of the storytelling. The wild, double-page watercolor spreads celebrate the farcical gadgets the inventor uses." --"Booklist""" "There is a natural lilt to the language that lends it a folkloric quality. Charming." --"School Library Journal""" "The sprightly pastel drawings are as lighthearted as the text, which bursts with energy and inventiveness." --"Kirkus Reviews"
