Reviews
"Haft (Goodnight Bubbala) introduces budding engineer Mazie McGear . . . who relishes solving problems and inventing fantastical machines to help out at home. In a palette of rust and turquoise, polished stylized illustrations by Holmes (The Eye That Never Sleeps) show Mazie's thought process: "First I turn on my imagination . . . Then I draw . . . Then . . . I build!" . . . Pulsing with friendly energy, this STEM-starter conveys the sense that engineering is something any child can do. Back matter explains the ideas behind Mazie's machines." --Publishers Weekly
