Gobbler was a poor orphan who lived on the streets of the steampunk town of New Babbage. He would spend his days searching for scraps of food to steal and, whenever he found some morsel, he would gobble it down quickly. It was for this reason that the other street children gave him the nickname of “Gobbler.”
One day Gobbler’s luck seemed to change when he spied an open door of a rich house and he sneaked inside to search for something free to eat. However, he found himself stumbling upon a meeting of local businessmen and he accidentally discovered the announcement of an amazing new invention that would change his life forever.
Find out how Gobbler managed to eavesdrop on the most important scientific discovery in the history of New Babbage and what he found out.
