"This engaging tale offers messages about being oneself, accepting differences, and forging friendships." --Publishers Weekly

Meet Albie Newton: child genius. He's a whiz at inventing things. But is he inventive enough to figure out how to make friends? 

When precocious inventor Albie Newton enters a new preschool, he concocts the perfect plan for making friends. Unfortunately, it involves stealing the hamster's wheel, snatching the wings off of Dave's toy airplane, and generally making a giant mess. Now everyone's angry at Albie Will his new invention delight the other kids enough to make everything right--and finally win their friendship? With this delightful rhyming picture book, favorite author Josh Funk (Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast) has written another winner.

Josh Funk writes silly stories and somehow tricks people into publishing them as books - such as the Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast series (including The Case of the Stinky Stench and the upcoming Mission Defrostable), How to Code a Sandcastle (and the upcoming sequel How to Code a Rollercoaster), ​It's Not Jack and the BeanstalkDear DragonAlbie NewtonPirasaurs!, and the forthcoming Lost in the Library: A Story of Patience and Fortitude (in conjunction with the New York Public Library), It's Not Hansel and Gretel, and more coming soon!
