Why in the world do kids have to go and invent things these days? Welcome to this steampunk universe! If you like inventions, power games, strawberry tarts, and hot air balloons then this is the book for you!

In the Cerulean Universe, the world is only just awakening to scientific discovery and invention. And Tart Morning hates change. He’s had the same old quilt since he was twelve, if you know what I mean. And now, thanks to a ground-breaking invention called “the weathernose” – a machine that calculates weather predictions, Tart’s career is on the line. His only choice is to destroy the weathernose, but the machine’s smug ten-year-old inventress, Cypress Korkul, is far too clever for him. Also, she has no sense of humor.
The child with autism doesn’t build up proper social skills and may have difficulties in contenting themselves with the surrounding. viagra cialis india They use formula of established pills, capsules and syrups with the permission of the government. cialis cheap prices The Brazilians are sure of the magical viagra viagra Amazon berry. In a cipla viagra generic market as competitive as the medicine market, the slightest edge over the competitor can make a huge difference.
In his scrambling efforts to keep up with the times, Tart finds himself willing to go to ever more dastardly lengths. How far is he willing to go to get his job and his old life back? What will he find out about Cypress – and himself – along the way?

The fastest way to get out of a rut can also be the hardest one.

What an interesting main character Tart was! He was the sort of person who had plenty of flaws that he wasn’t aware of in the slightest. I honestly didn’t like him very much in the beginning because of that, but I soon changed my mind as he began his journey of personal growth. He had a long way to go, and it was marvellous to see how he changed as a result of meeting Cyprus and losing his job.

There were pacing issues. The plot started off slowly and then became uneven. Adjusting to how quickly things were moving over and over again made it tricky for me to lose myself in the storyline. No sooner would I get used to one of the speeds than the next scene would switch things up again.

This story was filled with whimsical moments. It was set in a hazy portion of the past that only added to its charm, especially once I got to know the characters better and realized that weathernoses were the only option for anyone who wanted to know whether or not a thunderstorm might interrupt the picnic they had planned for tomorrow. Their world was a wonderfully quaint one where time passed leisurely and just about any interaction with the neighbors carried with it the possibility of something magical happening.

Weathernose should be read by anyone who has ever wished they could predict the weather.
