Ellie, Engineer. What can I tell you about a young girl who likes to build and create? This lovely little easy read chapter book contains: One Ellie, one toolbelt, one skirt, one sketchpad and one very active mind along with one friend with a birthday coming up. Then a mishap happens….
… and then another…. and then… well you know what.. I can’t tell you the WHOLE story. 🙂
Friendship and engineering fill the pages. Truthfulness and dishonesty place close seconds. Will Ellie and Kits’ friendship handle the tests put to it? Will new friendships become needful? Will Ellie lose it all in the end or will more be gained than could be even dreamed of?
An easy read chapter book with decently developed characters. It was a fun read with a handy “these are an engineers tools” section at the close of the book. Ellie’s sketches filled several pages throughout the book.
I laughed more than once. 🙂 I think it’s geared more 8-10 years. It was a good story filled with all sorts of engineering tasks and explanations about how a youth could engage in engineering tasks. I love the list of tools at the close of the book. A fun read with short chapters and sketches that add well to the story.
