I found it beautifully illustrated and my children adored the invention stories enough to warrant three readings in one night. My daughter has set her heart on inventing something new every day. A wonderful book for parent and child; I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.”

    “A well put together book, giving children an insight into creative and innovative processes which are engaging, achievable and fun. The technical information is conveyed simply and effectively. The tasks and prompts would be perfect for summer vacations or weekends to occupy children. The design is really compelling, giving space for the reader’s individual pursuits as they take on the challenges and plan their own inventions.”
