Charlie has lots of ideas. Need something to go sky high? Ah-ha! The zinger-winger! Need to launch a cheese popper into soup? The amazing popper-upper! But the zinger-winger zings more than wings and the popper-upper plops. Charlie isn't allowed to invent for a week. Meanwhile, the afterschool invention fair is coming up. He needs time to make something special. Good thing he has his friends and Mr. Redfern, another inventor, to help him out.

Editor reviews

This is a cute read for any science loving kid! Charlie wants to be a real-life inventor and while he's already gotten started on a few creations, they don't always turn out the way he plans. In fact, they tend to get him in trouble. (Oops!) Through the help of his after school friends and a quirky Scientist, Charlie learns that the process of creating and tweaking is just as much fun as the finished product!
