The Everything Machine

If you love Billionaire Boy or The Parent Agency, you’re going to adore this! Olly’s magical 3D printer can print sweets, robots and swimming pools. But can it print what Olly wants most: his dad? Olly is eleven, and he’s just had a very special delivery – a 3D printing machine with magical powers. It has a stamp: PROPERTY OF M.O.D. AND BRITISH SPACE AGENCY. It has a name. It speaks. Best of all, it can print ANYTHING Olly wants. (What would YOU ask for?) But what Olly really wants is … Dad, who has split up with Mum and moved out of the family home. So Olly’s machine creates Dad-Bot, who looks just like Dad on a good day. Soon their crazily funny adventures are turning Olly’s life upside down!
