Pub. Date:
When Professor Glink decides to create a perpetual motion machine replete with a "mingle-mangle" of pendulums, pulleys, cogs and gears, the darn contraption soon takes on a life of its own--with hilarious results. With sensationally complicated illustrations and show-stopping tongue-twisters, Gizmo may well be the looniest picture book of the year.
