Wouldnít it be wonderful to have a machine that does everything for you?

Life is good. But one day, the Everything Machine breaks and canít be fixed for months. What will become of the Quirks? How will they eat? How will anything get done? They donít know how to do anything on their own! The Quirks are forced to do their chores but with surprising results. The colorful comic panels and funny word bubbles will keep you smiling.  (Pennsylvania Young Readerís Choice Awards Program Booktalks 2012-2013)
