Inhaltsangabe: Leonard, the new boy on Spurwink Avenue, is the envy of the other kids in the neighborhood because of his talent for turning attic junk into a most amazing contraption.
From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K-- The five kids in the Spurwink Avenue gang play with considerable imagination. They pretend to be explorers, pirates, cowboys, and circus performers; but Leonard, the new kid on the block, shuns their efforts to include him with a succinct, ``Naw, man.'' He remains on the outskirts of their activities, happily fiddling with found objects. The children find him boring until : he drives by in the ``strangest, loudest, and possibly coolest vehicle'' they have ever seen, and they discover that he has a garage full of inventions. Of course, Leonard becomes an official gang member. While the story has great potential, it tries too hard to be modern and hip and ultimately betrays its adult roots. The illustrations, too, are overly exuberant and bright, although they do provide a full visual representation of the children's real and fantasy adventures. That Leonard's self-absorbed tinkering eventually results in his super car is not immediately clear and demands aggressive observation on the part of readers. Overall, while the illustrations' jaunty cartoon quality does match the text, the book as a whole is overdrawn and trite. --Martha Topol, Northwestern Michigan College, Traverse City, MI
