The Lovereading4Kids comment
Expand your knowledge of man’s accomplishments in the most compelling and irreverent way possible. Discover about some of the most important inventions the world has ever known! Masses of facts about the everyday things we take for granted are packed into this neat, pocket sized book. The information is themed – Communication, Entertainment, Ancient, Science and Tech etc – and easy to locate on colour-coded pages. Test yourself afterwards to see how much you have learnt!
101 Things You Wish You'd Invented And Some You Wish No One Had by Richard Horne, Tracey Turner
Marvel at the sheer brilliance of invention, from glass to underpants, the noble compass to the humble pencil. Not forgetting, of course, the undeniably indispensable banana suitcase. Filled with fascinating details about everything from the most common everyday object to inventions which changed society, it will also distinguish the strokes of genius from discoveries of sheer chance, or millennia of evolution ...and reveal the real reason why Alfred Nobel had to establish a peace prize (tut, tut). Expand your knowledge of man's accomplishments in the most compelling - and irreverent - way possible.
