What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Are you having a bad weather day? You should try Dr. Lancaster’s Portable Weather Machine. Want to rise above it all? Check out Dr. Torrance’s Anti-Gravity Belt. Yes, THE GUILD OF GENIUSES has created many fantastic inventions to satisfy humanity’s most pressing needs…

So when Fred’s best friend Mr. Pip seems a little down, Fred knows just who to call. The Guild introduces Mr. Pip to other monkeys (in case he was lonely) and throws him a parade (so he can feel important). But it turns out Fred may hold the solution after all — and he doesn’t have to be a genius to be a good friend.

Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

I really wanted to love this book because I love Dan Santat’s work and the cover and title make this look utterly intruiging. Unfortunately, I felt like the story itself was a little so-so . . . even though the illustrations were AMAZING!
