From the Author
Author Henry Walton has invented several products of questionable value over the years. None of these have made it to market. And that is probably for the better. His journeys through the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia have led him to the epic conclusion - The world is Absolutely Brilliant. Difficult sometimes. Confusing often. But humorous almost always. Thaddeaus Shockpocket is Henry's first book series for young adults.
Illustrator William Kevin Petty studied archeology and worked in museums during his 20's. His love of history, science and technology combined with world travel while in the service shaped his techno-whimsical illustration style and made him the perfect selection for Thaddeaus Shockpocket. Kevin has illustrated several books and posters in the Steampunk genre.
