The Marvelous Inventions of Alvin Fernald
(Purple House Press Aug. 2, 2011)
Since 1960, children have been enthralled by the adventures of Alvin Fernald. Whenever Alvin's Magnificent Brain kicks into action, it's time to watch out! For Alvin is always thinking up another marvelous invention. Maybe it's the Foolproof Burglar Alarm for his bedroom door, or a Sure Shot Paper Slinger for delivering newspapers from his bike. But there's no doubt about it, as his sister the Pest says, "Alvin is a genius!"
With his best friend Wilfred Shoemaker (Shoie for short) and the Pest, who always tags along, there is never a dull moment as Alvin unfolds the most brilliant plan of his career to solve the mystery surrounding the old Huntley place.
Updated, full color cover by Charles Geer. Alvin Fernald, Superweasel> is newly available for the Kindle!
