9780061449307: Wendel's Workshop

Wendel is far too busy inventing things to keep his workshop tidy. So if one of his inventions doesn't work, Wendel just tosses it onto the scrap heap and starts over. Then one day he invents the magnificent Wendelbot—a mighty robot that cleans and cleans and doesn't stop. Soon poor Wendel finds himself thrown onto the scrap heap! How will Wendel win back his workshop? Let the robot battle begin!

From the award-winning and always imaginative Chris Riddell comes a wonderfully funny, action-packed story full of surprises and extraordinary inventions.

From Booklist:

Wendel, a hardworking inventor mouse, sometimes invents so much he forgets to sleep, and whenever a doodad doesn’t work, he just tosses it aside. To handle the scrap heap, he invents a robot, names it Clunk, and sets it to work tidying up. But when Clunk makes a few mistakes, Wendel sends the robot to the junk pile and invents a bigger, badder cleaning robot, the Wendelbot. This one goes on a psycho cleaning jag and whisks Wendel right out of his workshop. Reunited with Clunk, Wendel invents an army of messy-minded robots to blow a gasket in the Wendelbot. In the end, Wendel learns that broken things demand mending, not trashing. Riddell fuses a gently twisted sensibility with his trademark finely wrought pen work and displays a winning sense of scale, filling some pages with multiple vignettes and others with full bleeds to punctuate the drama. Super fun, with tons to look at and a helpful but understated message, this picture book is ideal for solo readings, where the intricacies of the artwork can be fully appreciated. Preschool-Grade 2. --Ian Chipman
