Cleonardo, The Little Inventor

Written and Illustrated by Mary GrandPré

Cleonardo comes from a family of inventors. She watches her father work on his inventions and then makes her own creations. Her father pats her head and calls them cute. Cleo doesn’t want her inventions to be cute; she wants them to be amazing. When her father’s invention goes awry at the town competition, Cleo is able to help save the day. There is a nice feeling of family here, but the story is a bit too simple. The illustrations are lovely, which enhances the book immensely.
