The Mechanical Mind of John Coggin

When budding inventor John Coggin learns that his last living relative, Great-Aunt Beauregard, plans to make him and his six-year-old sister permanent employees of the family’s coffin business, he grabs his sister and runs away. After joining up with a circus performer named Boz, the trio must flee the troupe to avoid being found by Great-Aunt Beauregard, who is hot on their trail. Author “Teele spins her adventure around a sturdy protagonist whose love for his little sister is matched only by his fierce desire for something better in life for them both … A sly, side-splitting hoot from start to finish” (KIRK).
