February 2022 Debut of the Month

Inventors don’t come much more inventive than young Leonora Bolt. In her home on remote Crabby Island, shared with her otter Twitchy, eccentric housekeeper Mildred and (occasionally) with her nasty Uncle Lester, Leonora comes up with all sorts of amazing gadgets and most astonishing of all is the Switcheroo, which can make objects swap places, via a nifty bit of quantum computing. Despite her brilliance, Leonora has never yet left the island and Uncle Luther seems determined to keep it that way. When a boy called Jack is washed up though, Leonora has to help and in the process she discovers secrets her uncle was keeping (we knew he was a bad un!). The story is full of fun and surprises, plus a fair bit of tension: will Leonora escape the island and Uncle Luther? Were her parents really lost at sea? Favourite scenes include a ride in a hot air balloon, suspended from a wonderful variety of inflatables, and another in the stinkiest cave in fiction. Lots of fun, this is one to recommend to readers who like their adventures wild, wacky and full of invention(s).

Super fun and great to read!

Wow this book was just so fun! Leonora Bolt is a child inventor who lives with her mean and scary uncle in a lighthouse on an island. She creates wonderful inventions but she's not allowed to leave the island. All that changes when a boy called Jack ends up on her island!
I loved Leonora's inventions, they were so fun and clever, I'd love to be an inventor like her even if it's a but dangerous! The book was really funny and cool and a bit silly.
