THE AWESOME, IMPOSSIBLE, UNSTOPPABLE GADGET, by Kevin Kelly & Rebecca Kelly, Imprint, Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group


This inspiring picture book about incredible inventions going haywire illustrates that with persistence, anyone can be awesome, impossible, and unstoppable.
Trixie O’Toole is super-excited to be at Camp Create, where she can invent whatever she likes. But when a boy nicknamed “Professor” von Junk gets all the attention, Trixie feels left out. Still, she persists in following her own inspiration.
When von Junk’s Invention Inventor goes out of control, everyone is horrified. Is Trixie’s own invention sufficiently awesome, impossible, and unstoppable to save the day?
Trixie’s triumph will inspire future inventors and mad scientists to believe in themselves, and show that all good ideas deserve a chance.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

So here I am looking at this silly, fun and exciting book written in verse accompanied by brilliant illustrations full of explosive colors and exciting and often large designs.

This book will catch the eye of young boys and girls and win their love for characters creative and daring. The author did a fabulous job at wowing this reader with his use of original verse and fantastic story. Put that with the added talent of a great illustrator perfect for this science-flavored story, you have a booming duo of predictable success. Great teamwork! Modern illustrations used by this Kelly team, are indicative of video game influences that will draw the attention of the kids today.

Love the layout of the book. Love everything!
