Review: LEO Inventor Extraordinare by:Luke Cunningham

 LEO, Inventor Extraordinaire

**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:

An orphan named Leo discovers clues to his past when he finds a series of tunnels below his school. But to unlock the answers, he’ll need every skill and invention he has—even if his inventions don’t always work.

A “lifer” at the secluded Academy of Florence, Leo has never met his parents ... or anyone in his family for that matter. His current “family” is his mechanical monkey and robot lion, who along with his charming best friend and fellow lifer, Savvy, only get him into trouble. But after Leo’s latest experiment goes catastrophically wrong, he finds a mysterious clue that opens an underground maze—one that seems to have been created for him to solve.

Leo hopes the tunnels will help him discover the identities of his parents and the reason he’s an orphan in the first place. Instead, he finds that his past and possibly even his future is somehow linked to the innovative Wynn Toys company, whose genius president mysteriously disappeared years before.

Leo must use his creativity and scientific know-how to revive the toy company, oust its dastardly leader, and discover the fate of his real family.

My Review:

 What young boy wouldn't like the life of Leo, child inventor? To be able to go on the fun adventures that do NOT fit the mold of such a young bold. He is courageous, creative, and captivating and thats just the tip of the iceberg. He is a techno savvy orphan that is on the hunt to find his birth parents, but what he doesnt know is that there is so much more in store for him.

 This is definitely a chapter book for ages 8-12 but you could use it as a read aloud for younger age groups. The language was clean and straight forward and seems to be very engaging. My son who is almost 11, really enjoyed the book and begged for more. Getting to know Leo was fun and interesting!

A great summer read!
