Reviews

* "Like...David Macaulay and Captain Underpants, this routinely silly, genuinely intelligent deep dive into engineering basics leaves kids as informed as they are amused."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"The text and illustrations succeed in grabbing the readers' attention because of the vivid colors and spirit of fun. The characters are quirky and silly, making this nonfiction book about simple machines...engaging."--School Library Connection

"The balance of the fantastical story with scientific and historical facts makes this a good title to recommend to fiction and nonfiction readers alike."--School Library Journal
