    A fun book using big words although the clever dachshund narrarator explains them Noodles is Wally s dog and best friend Wally s parents Oliver and Calypso are brilliant inventors, as is Wally But Wally s cousins live with them and dislike Wally and Noodles So Noodles keeps a close eye on them to keep Wally safe.

    Wally is a 12 year old son science genius whose parents run an inn and are also inventors Wally and his dachshund Noodles must save the world from the evil Mesmers who are trying to take over the world through mind control This is a fun, light reading book for elementary middle school age children I particularly enjoyed how the story was told from the viewpoint of the dog a creative, fun narrative style that added a lot of humor.

    A fluffy steampunk romp with flair, in which a young genius scientist, following in the footsteps of his derring do and brilliance filled parents, protects the world from a curious hypnotic superweapon Amusing setting, cute dog, some interesting twists and turns and a fun appearance of Teddy Roosevelt.

    The Mesmer Menace Gadgets and Gears is the first book in a new series for middle grade reader written by Kersten Hamilton and illustrations by James Hamilton The Amazing Automated Inn is home of twelve year old inventor Wally Kennewickett, his genius scientist parents, his dashing dog Noodles, and a pair of snobby cousins There is a lightning harvester on the roof and labs full of experiments in the dungeon The inn is the perfect place for a curious boy and his loyal dog to live Then Presid The Mesmer Menace Gadgets and Gears is the first book in a new series for middle grade reader written by Kersten Hamilton and illustrations by James Hamilton The Amazing Automated Inn is home of twelve year old inventor Wally Kennewickett, his genius scientist parents, his dashing dog Noodles, and a pair of snobby cousins There is a lightning harvester on the roof and labs full of experiments in the dungeon The inn is the perfect place for a curious boy and his loyal dog to live Then President Theodore Roosevelt himself calls the elder Kennewicketts away, leaving Wally and Noodles to face the evil Mesmers, the horrible hypnotists bent on controlling the minds of powerful people who the adults are away trying to stop It seems the inn is their first stop on the way to world domination and only an ingenious boy, a staff of automatons, and a brave dachshund stand in their way The Mesmer Menace Gadgets and Gears is a fun and inventive book told from the perspective of a dachshund Wally is a young genius with inventions and plans of his own when the President arrives with a plot brewing and great need of help from his family I love that the family is very different, since everyone is pretty much a genius, but you can still feel the love they have for each other Noodles is a dog on a mission the protection and support of young Wally while doing his best to keep the amazing inn and world in order as well While some of the story s features might not seem new the intrepid genius, evil plot to take over the world, and a need for saving the day might not seem new, I think that the story comes together in a way that is new and exciting for readers The narrator being a dog might turn off some readers, or make it hard for some to connect with the characters, I found Noodle s voice to be a charming feature of the story I think the master villain and some of the final confrontation scenes, as well as the cast of automatons and Noodle s unique voice made the novel stand out as something a bit special I am interested to see where the series goes from here.The Mesmer Menace Gadgets and Gears was a middle grade novel that I really enjoyed It was not the best book I have read but is was fresh, fun, and a quick read It was interesting to see a book take on a steampunk like feel for the middle grade set I think many reluctant readers might just find this series something that could draw them into the reading fold

    Summary The story is narrated by Noodles, an adorable Dachshund, who is loyal to Wally Kennewickett, a twelve year old inventor The two live in the family s Amazing Automated Inn, where automatons staff and run the inn, and the basement is a laboratory The Kennewickett s are brilliant inventors and are often called away to solve problems In this tale, President Roosevelt calls upon Wally s mom and dad to help solve the case of evil Mesmers controlling the minds of very powerful people The on Summary The story is narrated by Noodles, an adorable Dachshund, who is loyal to Wally Kennewickett, a twelve year old inventor The two live in the family s Amazing Automated Inn, where automatons staff and run the inn, and the basement is a laboratory The Kennewickett s are brilliant inventors and are often called away to solve problems In this tale, President Roosevelt calls upon Wally s mom and dad to help solve the case of evil Mesmers controlling the minds of very powerful people The only problem is that they are set for a popcorn convention to show off Wally s mom s newest invention and dad s experiment with Tesla is about to happen as well After some compromises, the eldest Kennewickett s leave with the President and Wally takes care of the Inn Unfortunately, the horrible Mesmers end up at the Inn and Wally, with Noodles help of course, must save the day.My thoughts I m obviously not the targeted audience, but I really enjoyed this short novel The best age group for this would be around 4 6th grade I think older may find it a little too childish and younger would have difficulty with vocabulary While words are often described if they are difficult, it does have a fair share of historical and scientific aspects that a younger child will not understand Other than that, this is a fun slightly mysterious tale Wally is a very likeable character with out of the box thinking and great care for his parents, the automatons, and his unlikable cousins My favorite character is Noodles, of course He is adorable I love his narration and all of his little aside comments Plus, I love the loyal dog traits that are so apparent in my puppy that show up in Noodles character Maybe my little Aiden will have a hero heart as well

    Oliver and Calypso Kennewickett are famous scientists and because of their intelligence President Theodore Roosevelt seeks their help in uncovering the problem of the Mesmers or magicians that are hypnotizing important people However, things take a completely different turn when the problem comes to the Automated Inn after Wally s parents leave to help the President So it is up to Wally and Noodles the dachshund to save the day.I liked that the story was actually told from Noodles perspec Oliver and Calypso Kennewickett are famous scientists and because of their intelligence President Theodore Roosevelt seeks their help in uncovering the problem of the Mesmers or magicians that are hypnotizing important people However, things take a completely different turn when the problem comes to the Automated Inn after Wally s parents leave to help the President So it is up to Wally and Noodles the dachshund to save the day.I liked that the story was actually told from Noodles perspective and that Noodles tends to translate some fancierscientific terms throughout the story While I thought that some of the interruptions to explain the meaning of words dragged the story slightly I think that younger kids will appreciate the interruption in order to learn some new vocabulary I also kept forgetting that the book was set in the early 1900 s because the Inn is advanced in technology because of Wally s parents but overall it still resembles the time period that they lived in I think this will be a good series to continue in the future and may get some kids interested in science as well I received this advanced copy from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review
