A wonderfully entertaining new adventure for the little inventor with the big imagination
The adventure that began in Leonora Bolt Secret Inventor continues in this gadget-filled new episode.
Ace junior-inventor Leonora is in hiding from her wicked Uncle Luther who is holding her parents hostage somewhere in the ocean. Hiding is tricky for a girl who likes nothing better than launching sub-aquatic vehicles from trees, but her immediate challenge is school – she’s never been before. She doesn’t even make it to lunch before she’s accidentally set up the activation of her Sonic Headteacher Demobilizer, but maybe that’s just as well as a suspicious looking ‘teacher’ turns up on her trail.
It’s time to set off in her specially-built submarine on the trail of her parents. This is just the start of another exciting adventure, packed with fun, thrills and gadgets galore. There are all sorts of surprises along the way – for Leonora as well as for readers – and it all makes for hugely entertaining and thoroughly inventive reading.
The second laugh-out-loud adventure for Leonora Bolt, Secret Inventor.
Leonora isn't supposed to be building a submarine in a tree. Or turning the local wildlife luminous. In fact, she is supposed to be keeping her head down and drawing no attention - because Leonora Bolt is an inventor in secret. But she can't stop thinking of the clues she found to her missing parents' location. So, deep in hiding in Snorebury, desperately trying to avoid being discovered by her evil uncle, Leonora is hatching a plan. So what if involves launching a homemade submarine into the middle of the ocean, accompanied only by a couple of friends and an otter with particularly sensitive whiskers?
For when disaster strikes, Leonora's wackiest plan might just be her most brilliant yet.
