Look out Humble, here comes Cleo. Cleopatra W. Darby’s ideas are big, and her  inventions are out of this world. So when Cleo moves into her new old house in the country, the small town of Humble isn’t quite ready for her, especially Ms. Mason and her daughter Emmie. Cleo is worried that Humble just isn’t the place for her. All of her inventions have flopped since she’s  arrived. But Mom, Dad, Albert, and Mrs. Swell believe in her, and Cleo is not one to give up. If she can’t find a friend, she’ll invent one. And after her invented friend, Hope, falls apart, Cleo is still able to save the day. After all, one good idea always leads to another...
