This book is not what I really expected. It's in a drawing/cartoon form. I was going to give it to my father-in-law for Christmas, but instead, will be giving it to my step-son. It does have neat inventions.
Did you know that there was life before Frisbees?
How long do you think doughnuts have been with us?
Who wanted the first pair of eyeglasses?
What about those Flat-Bottomed Paper Bags in which your parents bring home groceries?
Why did the passion for chewing gum stick?
How exactly did the vacuum cleaner to suck mud?
Questions, questions, odd and stupid
answered in poems both factually & frilly!
A good book to start you wondering about how things got started & why.
This book was recently listed on the website of Time magazine as one of 6 "Best Children 's book' ve never heard of." "Never heard of" part for a short time 'long .. . The authors first book (yes, I bought it too!) is equally thought-provoking for children goals 's early life, but also charming and sweet.
