The Mesmer Menace: Gadgets and Gears, Book One

We rated this book:


Wally Kennewickett is what I imagine Doctor Who was like as a kid: inventive, has great ideas, and has a sidekick. The Mesner Menace: Gadgets and Gears, Book One is about a kid and his wiener dog, Noodles, who is actually the one who tells the story. Wally is a Steampunk inventor, who lives with his inventor scientist parents in the Automated Inn. When the Mesmers start hypnotizing everybody, his parents are asked by the president to help, leaving Wally at the Inn with his mean cousins. But, before they know it, the Mesners are at the Inn and nothing seems safe. Can Wally and Noodles stop the Mesners before it is too late?

This book was just right, and the perfect chapter book for new readers and older readers. It has some cool art in it that help you visualize the story. There were words I didn’t know, but Noodles does a good job at explaining them so you end up learning something from this book. I am actually excited to read more books with Noodles and Wally and see what new mysteries and adventures they go on! All ages should read this book. It was definitely worth picking up!
