The Awesome, Impossible, Unstoppable, Gadget

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

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.
