Meet Maxine, an inspiring young maker who knows that with enough effort and imagination (and mistakes), it’s possible to invent anything.
Maxine loves making new things from old things. She loves tinkering until she has solved a problem. She also loves her pet goldfish, Milton. So when it’s time for her school’s pet parade, she’s determined to create something that will allow Milton to march with the other animals. Finally, after trying, trying, and trying again, she discovers just the right combination of recycled odds and ends to create a fun, functional–and absolutely fabulous–solution to her predicament.
“Has all of the three C’s: Cute, Colorful, Creative! Great picture book read for your curious child, crafter or tinkerer about a young girl’s determination to make her “impossible” situation work with her pet goldfish. Text is combined with colorful, clever illustrations. Highly recommend!“
“A great story about a girl and her inventions for her pet goldfish. Has a great message about not giving up. “She had already discovered a million ways that would not work. Which meant she was getting closer to finding a way that would.” Would be best enjoyed as an one-on-one story in order to see all the details in the illustrations.”
