Description
Real-life toy inventor Tim Kehoe (who won Popular Science's Grand Prize for Innovation in 2005 for the world's first colored bubbles, Zubbles) here presents the adventures of 11-year-old inventor Vincent Shadow, whose inspirations come to him in blinding visions. Vincent's secret attic lab is crammed with toy prototypes, from Liquid Superballs to Rainbow Rocketz, and he has a sketchbook filled with many more ideas, but he loses his lab and his visions when his dad and stepmom move the family from New York City to frigid Minnesota. Now how will Vincent ever become a famous toy inventor? Kehoe's tale for readers 8 to 11, the first in a series, includes a replica of Vincent's idea-filled invention sketchbook.

"Vincent's visions are all of fantastic toys: windless kites, everlasting squirt guns, and 3-D ink, among them. Being a boy genius was easy when Vincent's supportive mom helped him build a secret home laboratory, but following her death and his father's remarriage, things change.... Just as both his genius and morale seem to be bottoming out, he learns of a promising toy-invention contest sponsored by legendary toymaker Howard G. Whiz. If Vincent wins it, he'll earn an apprenticeship back in New Yorka once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to utilize his gift. As the contest nears, renewed inspiration comes from newly discovered Tesla artifacts and the surprising support of his stepsister. The question is, can Vincent overcome the last-minute sabotage by a rival in time to realize his dream? This is a solid, whimsically illustrated writing debut from a real-life toy inventor."School Library Journal
