Look out Humble, here comes Cleo.
Cleopatra W. Darby’s ideas are big, and her
inventions are out of this world. So when Cleo
moves into her new old house in the country, the
small town of Humble isn’t quite ready for her,
especially Ms. Mason and her daughter Emmie.
Cleo is worried that Humble just isn’t the place for
her. All of her inventions have flopped since she’s
arrived. But Mom, Dad, Albert, and Mrs. Swell
believe in her, and Cleo is not one to give up. If she can’t find a friend, she’ll invent one. And after her invented friend, Hope, falls apart, Cleo is still able to save the day.
After all, one good idea always leads to another...
