Synopsis

Inventions A Thousand Years of Bright Ideas and the Science That Inspired Them by

Let Sparky show you the way in this definitive guide to the 50 most important inventions of the last 1,000 years, from eyeglasses to the ever-present internet itself. The little lightning-bolt character talks children through the text, providing quips and comments on the science, context and historical development of technology (fancy getting burnt at the stake for heresy?) and the spreads are accompanied by a fantastic mix of photos and illustrations. A perfect addition to young readers' bookshelves.
