Summary

Humorous, illustrated look at some of histories inventions

Before magnifying glasses, how did people look at things big size? Through bowls of water, of course! Did you know that the printed word originated from the Chinese and seaworthy craft came from dugout canoes! Spot the...

fizzy drink sold as 'brain tonic' (guess what that is)
the idea for modern space rockets dates from 1903
the idea for the computer program came from cloth weaving
movie-goers found Cinema so exciting, they screamed,

and so much more. All revealed in lively text and humorous pictures. There are also crazy inventions (glass razorblades that never rust, why not?) and off-beam predictions - some people thought electric light would never catch on!
