Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Ire of Iron Claw: Gadgets and Gears, Book Two Expressive and vigorous, the art brings the characters to life (the evildoers with handlebar mustaches are a treat). . . . The swift pace, quirky humor, and general steampunkery should hold the interest of readers-especially the mechanically and electronically inclined." -Kirkus Reviews Praise for The Mesmer Menace: Gadgets and Gears, Book One Winter 2013-2014 Kids' Indie Next List "Fast paced and funny, with plenty of alliteration and word definitions provided by Noodles, it carries hints of both Lemony Snicket's wordplay and the absurdity of M. T. Anderson's Pals in Peril series. . . . Young, precocious readers and older readers looking for a shorter read will enjoy this first title in the Gadgets and Gears series." -Booklist "[An] auspicious first book. . . . Hamilton makes the comedic most of her premise. . . . Noodles's antics and droll, mannered narration make him the indisputable star of this show." -Publishers Weekly "Steampunk with training wheels for the chapter book set. . . . Sly humor . . . nifty, gear-laden illustrations . . . [an] imaginative, engaging premise." - Kirkus Reviews "
