Book Description

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#1 Amazon Bestseller!! (Children's Action & Adventure Books, December 16, 2013, Children's Steampunk Books, December 14, 2013)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WARNING! If you read this kids mystery book, you may experience or be exposed to: QUANTAM LEAPS, DEJA VU, WORMHOLES, GRAVITATIONAL WAVES, SPEED OF LIGHT, SUDDEN BURSTS OF GANGAHAM STYLE DANCE MOVES, TEMPORARY MEMORY LOSS, HYPER SPACE, TEMPORARY MEMORY GAIN, MAGIC GIFTS, THE MAGIC HOUR, THE MAGIC WITHIN, A RANDOM NEED TO PLAY CANDY CRUSH, AN ATTRACTION TO STEAMPUNK, AND THE COOLEST IDEA FOR BOOKS FOR KIDS AGE 6 to 11 EVER…

The Sprocketeers: “Great Giza Gonzo”, the first in a spectacular “twins series”, is a wonderfully crafted piece of kids historical fiction, chronicling the escapades of the time-travelling, quirky, nuclear twins, Cooper and Alyx, as their mystical trunk (and the magic within it) hits sand in ancient Egypt. Meanwhile, their curmudgeonly wicked neighbor, Oswald Pennytinker, arrives in a beat up old trunk of his own, attempting to steal the King’s treasures.

Through action, humor and adventure, readers will be introduced to the twins’ eccentric inventor father, Clark, post-punk, fashion savvy mother, Isabella, and our galactic guides and fraternal twins: Cooper and his younger sister (only by 11 seconds but who’s counting?) Alyx!

Hold on tight as the Sprocketeers journey “time after time” through limitless time-traveling missions from present to past to future and beyond in their “magic hour”, time-altering antique chest that’s tucked away in the family attic (shhh…) AKA…”The Box.”



Let the colorful illustrations suck you into the world of the turbulent twins’ and their discovery of the magic gifts the time travel Box from their parents’ attic hold.

When they climb inside The Box, their mission will be revealed.

The duo, along with their loyal “pet” Rivet - an automaton metal spider fashioned like an eight-legged Swiss army knife – trek through time, overcoming historic and futuristic obstacles from the dawn of earth - to dinosaur girth - to doing battle with Martian bands and in this first book, saving the treasures of the Egyptian pyramids.

THE SPROCKETEERS: “Great Giza Gonzo” is the first in the twins series, a high-octane trip through time, fueled by imagination, the magic hour, and riddled with the type of problem solving only this tenacious team of pre-teen twins could provide.

So, power your flux capacitors, button down your hyper loops, fire up your hot tube time machines and get ready to think outside “The Box” with our time traveling twins Cooper and Alyx, “The Sprocketeers”, in their first adventure book Great Gizo Gonzo.

I bought this and read it to my primary school class here in Scotland. Lots of new and wonderful vocabulary and a great storyline. The children loved it and are all excited to find out where Cooper and Alyx will go next! Absolutely brilliant book. Not surprised it has been a bestseller!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book to read to children, 23 Dec. 2013
By georgie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book on recommendation from a friend and how glad I am. I love the complex language and compact story line. Too many books for children patronise and assume because a child might struggle to read some of the words they don't want to hear them. This is a very well written, funny and exciting story, I enjoyed it as much as my children. The illustrations are excellent too, in the comic book style, bright and expressive. A book to share over and over. Highly recommended.

Brilliant and engaging story with fantastic artwork to accompany it.The story wonderfully weaves a tale of turning things around, making a friend where you don't expect to - and the artwork is eye-popping gorgeous and colorful. The Sprocketeers: Great Giza Gonzo is a real treat. Great example of a children story that has a ton of atmosphere, engagement and above all, loads of fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky characters full of fun 16 Dec. 2013
By Elizabeth Ashworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is very fun with great quirky characters. I love that it has many words that are not used in common vernacular, so it is a great way to encourage kids to learn new words and have a sizable vocabulary without it seeming like homework. I love the steampunk theme and that rather than having a stereotypical robodog, they have one that is quite unique. A super mix of history, mystery, fun, and family, it reminds me of the BatPat series. I would love to see the Sprocketeers in hardcopy.

Edgy and a ton of fun. It's like an Indiana Jones adventure with a punk twist for children. My little nephew Diego absolutely loves it. Would love to see this in a physical print.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! And no sand in my shoes at the end of the adventure. 10 July 2014
By Ed. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To quote the main characters, "Totally remarkulous!"

Sundae and Company put together a wonderful, colorful, fast-paced read. As other reviewers have noted, it reminded me a bit of "Raiders of the Lost Ark". However, "The Sprocketeers" has plenty of its own imagination, from a metal spider, a mysterious, glowing chest in the attic, several mysteries to solve and just plenty of fun. And I loved the name of the villain, "Oswald Pennytiner".

One of my favorite treasures in the story was the answer to one of the mysteries of the great sphinx.
