Synopsis: The absurd rhyming story of a man who marries a vacuum only to have his love stolen by a lawnmower. The silly moral to the story and the giddy rhymes bring back memories of Shel Silverstein's Where the Sidewalk Ends .

From School Library Journal: Grade 3 Up-The front cover of this book is in the form of a formal wedding invitation and it invites readers to the marriage of man and machine at the swanky Dunes Hotel. How Oliver Hoover and his bride Elektra, a Vac-U-Lux model #O-U-QT vacuum cleaner, met and were married is told in amusing rhyming couplets. When Mr. Hoover finds his bride missing, he quickly takes steps to find her, but gets off the track when he meets a woman in similar distress. Her husband, a power lawn mower, is also missing. The human couple fall in love immediately, are married, and live happily ever after, she pushing a hand mower and he flitting about with a feather duster. And the machines? They are seen rusting in the city junk yard, unable to go anywhere without humans to provide the power. The moral: Humans shouldn't depend solely on machines because they can't get anywhere by themselves. The witty cartoon illustrations in watercolor, pen, and black ink are well suited to the nonsense verse. Even though the couplets don't scan perfectly, the humor carries them. This story may be outrageous for some, but it's all in fun and the moral makes it worth considering in these machine-dominated times.
