Mr McMarvel is an inventor, but he has a lot of problems. His assistant, Tim, and very polite robot, Rupert, try to outwit the villains….but odd things are happening.
It’s a cheeky machine, for it tips Tim (Mr McMarvel’s assistant) all over the place but is great fun when Tim works out how to control it.
Mr McMarvel’s Amazing Machines is a fun e-book for children aged 7 or 8 and is available on Amazon’s Kindle, Kobo, Applie iBooks, Barnes and Noble, Sony ebooks, Diesel and Smashwords.
I always fancied living in a railway carriage. My dad drove trains, so maybe that is where the fancy came from! I don’t doubt that the idea in practice would have been as much fun as I thought.

What sort of machine would you invent?
The Extra-Fast-Rollerblading Machine
The Extra-Fast-Rollerblading Machine swooped round the corner. Smoke and stars roared out of the back. It shot past Mr McMarvel’s workshop and rolled on down the road.
Tim bent forward, his face screwed up as he wrestled with the controls. The machine’s big boots stuck into his knees. He was going so fast he couldn’t swing the machine in the right direction.
The machine choked and stuttered. The machine slid sideways and upended Tim onto the pavement.
Mr McMarvel had invented the Extra-Fast-Rollerblading Machine for people who were in a hurry. Tim had been testing it out for two days now, and he was black and blue from falling off. He could operate the other machines in the workshop but not this one. Tim desperately wanted to be useful. In fact, secretly, he wanted to impress Mr McMarvel so that he would show him how to invent amazing machines. So far, Tim hadn’t the courage to ask him.
The wheels on the Rollerblades whirled madly at super express speed. They slowly came to a stop. Tim looked up. The name over the street door shone out in multi-coloured lights:
