Synopsis

The Fix-it Man by Susan Hood

Meet Joshua James, the fix-it man. If he can't fix it, no one can! When a stinky problem arises, Joshua James takes matters into his own hands with a little help from his younger sister, Sophie. This playful read-aloud story with catchy text and imaginative illustrations is sure to inspire young inventors everywhere.

Reviews

The brief text is in a jaunty rhyming format, and its enthusiasm is mirrored in the illustrations...This will have broad appeal. -- Booklist Pair with Andrea Beaty's Ada Twist, Scientist for a terrific session on the trial and error of tinkering and problem-solving. A recommended general purchase. -- School Library Journal
