reS-Gr 1-Sydney is a mouse who enjoys designing and building things. Her newest and best invention is a remote-control star that she enters in a science fair, hoping to win first prize: a blue ribbon and the telescope she covets. During a demonstration of its capabilities, the remote control appears to fail and her star drifts away. Embarrassed and dejected, she slinks home in the rain. Unbeknownst to Sydney, her creation has picked up a distress signal and gone to guide Captain Stella Stilton's boat to safety in a storm. As a thank-you to Sydney, the captain awards the young inventor the ship's telescope. So, even though she lost the science fair, the large-eared, long-tailed rodent attains her heart's desire, which readers learn about from the last illustration showing the cover story of the Seaport News. Watercolor-and-gouache (and tea) illustrations show the determined mouse hard at work with her drawings, plans, and prototypes. A mildly entertaining tale starring a perky, self-confident character.
