"When Mr. King discovers a flower nibbled by a caterpillar, he is NOT happy. So he builds himself a Caterpillar-Catcher and off he goes. But he doesn't notice that his machine is belching smoke, or that he is leaving crushed flowers in his wake. Now his friends are NOT happy and Mr. King isn't very proud of himself. But - aha! - Mr. King reconfigures his machine and now instead of smoke his new Flower-Fan sends out gusts of flower seeds. Working together, Mr. King and his friends use his new, smokeless machine to plant flowers, and Mr. King discovers that he not only likes flowers and machines, but caterpillars, too! A playful and engaging read-aloud story with themes of environmental responsibility, creativity and friendship, 'Mr. King's Machine' is the third and final book in the Mr. King series, which features environmentally friendly tales starring the short-sighted but well-meaning Mr. King and his helpful forest friends. AGES: 3-7 AUTHOR: As a child, Genevieve loved to draw and to make up stories about her pet mouse Calamity Jane. So no one in her family was much surprised when she went on to become an illustrator --- and sometimes writer --- of children's books. She has illustrated a number of books for children of all ages, and is also the author-illustrator of the Mr.King series and the Piggy and Bunny series, both published by Kids Can Press. She has won several awards, including the Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award in 2012 and the Governor General's Literary Award for Illustration in 2007.
