The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a fantastic who, when, why and where book devoted to the exciting world of inventors and inventions through time. Successful inventions as well as failures are featured but best of all it’s a brilliant potted history on those key inventions that have changed our world.

It’s a book that is sure to keep children from 6-10 with ‘big ideas’ fully immersed for hours. And, you never know, your child might in time be remembered as one of the 21st century’s most famous inventors.
