High-spirited, high-energy, and loyal, Coppernickel is a bird of action. His best friend Tungsten is a super adventure dog himself, but in the most low-key way, and, as a bird's best friend, he too is loyal.

In The Invention, Coppernickel discovers a blank page at the end of his favorite book -- a great, big book about every invention ever made, and he takes this as an invitation to create his own. At first he wants to invent something that is simple and very useful, but as he begins to create a machine for picking high-hanging elderberries (his all time favorite food), his enthusiasm gets the better of him and his ever-more-complex machine gets out of hand. This is no surprise given that whenever Coppernickel has something on his mind he goes to great lengths to accomplish his ideas, until he reaches the greatest possible lengths, after which he goes on to even greater lengths! Fortunately, the level-headed Tungsten is there to save the day—in more ways than one!

Full of intricate and wildly imaginative illustrations that literally fall off the page, The Invention brings the process of drawing, inventing and exploring to life. Children will marvel over Coppernickel's marvelous machine, while delighting in the funny antics of this daring duo!
