Ellie is an engineer. With a tool belt strapped over her favorite skirt (who says you can't wear a dress and have two kinds of screwdrivers handy, just in case?), she invents and builds amazing creations in her backyard workshop. Together with her best friend Kit, Ellie can make anything.

As Kit's birthday nears, Ellie doesn't know what gift to make until the girls overhear Kit's mom talking about her present--the dog Kit always wanted! Ellie plans to make an amazing doghouse, but her plans grow so elaborate that she has to enlist help from the neighbor boys and crafty girls, even though the two groups don't get along. Will Ellie be able to pull off her biggest project yet, all while keeping a secret from Kit?

Illustrated with Ellie's sketches and plans, and including a fun how-to guide to tools, this is a STEM- and friendship-powered story full of fun!

Industry Reviews

"Charming. . . . In addition to spotlighting engineering, the narrative contains strong themes of friendship and working together toward a common goal." --School Library Journal

"Ellie's easily relatable as an everyday kid . . . Aspiring inventors will appreciate the descriptions and black and white sketches of Ellie's various creations, so be sure to make some room in the makerspace for Ellie's new fans." --BCCB

"Pearce emphasizes Ellie's persistence and individuality. . . . Mourning's notebook-style images help give a sense of how Ellie's brain works." --Publishers Weekly

"Explicitly rejects the idea that activities and objects are gendered (e.g., boys and girls can both like engineering and tea parties). The twist ending is not what most readers will expect. A spirited, duplicable depiction of STEM fun." --Kirkus Reviews

"An entertaining and memorable story. . . Pearce sets the stage for what could easily become a favorite series." --Publishers Weekly on THE DOUBLECROSS

"Oddball characters with plenty of heart and nifty gadgets will draw in readers who appreciate humorous underdog stories." --Booklist on THE DOUBLECROSS

"A fun-filled adventure from start to finish." --Booklist on THE INSIDE JOB

"This sequel will continue to thrill fans of the series. Wacky and action-packed." --Kirkus Reviews on THE INSIDE JOB
