When Eddie's new neighbour, Tom, moves in next door, he asks Eddie to help him fix some things. Soon Eddie is learning how to use a measuring tape, hammer and saw. Before long he has made a boat for his little sister, has fixed his Mum's glasses and made a bird feeder.
This book is wonderful. It shows young children that they can make and mend. The things Eddie makes are simple and inspiring. There are notes at the end of the book about basic tools for a budding young maker and about attracting birds to your garden.
