This Cool Inventor Just Made A Cat-A-Palt
But Where Is The Cat?
– AUDREY CERTAINLY HAS BIG IDEAS –
Audrey, a cute redhead, wears her hair in pigtails tied with measuring tape. She is extremely curious, always asking questions, and likes to discover how things work.
When her teacher asks everyone what they want to be when they grow up, Audrey beams when she announces,
“I want to be an inventor!”
That evening she begins drawing plans for inventions she’d like to work on. But after she completes her egg collector and cat-a-palt inventions, she is disappointed that the egg collector is a failure and that the cat is not excited about flying through the air in her new invention. In fact, her dad and cat just aren't impressed at all with this little inventor and her inventions. She is devastating.
When Audrey declares herself a failure her dad has a talk with her, but will that be enough to put her back on the right track?”
What Concerned Me: This is an itty-bitty concern: I didn’t care for the eyes, or lack of eyes, on the characters.
What I Liked Best: I especially enjoyed the detailed illustrations, plus the imagination that Audrey used to come up with her unique inventions. This book should excite many children who have big dreams. It's even good at helping kids think outside-the-box.
