Author Judith St. George and award winning illustrator David Small are back with a new and engaging look at history, and those who enjoyed their first collaboration, So You Want To Be President, are in for another captivating, fun-filled treat. So you want to be an inventor and you think you have what it takes. Take a peek inside the covers of this clever book, and find out a little about some of the famous and not-so-famous who have gone before you. Ms St. George's easy to read, short profiles are written in an entertaining, conversational style, and complemented by Mr Small's dazzling and humorous illustrations. Each bold and busy page is filled with history, trivia, fun-facts, and playful wit that whets the appetite and inspires. Perfect for youngsters 8-12, So You Want To Be An Inventor is a marvelous collection that celebrates ingenuity, and may just get your kids' creative juices flowing. Who knows, you may be living with the next Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, or Josephine Cochran (she invented the dishwasher).

I bought this book for my nephew who is in high school and wants to be and engineer and inventor. He liked it. The reading level is below high school but it contains information about historical inventors such as Thomas Jefferson who invented some glasses for chickens. My nephew thought that was pretty weird!

This book is probably good for kids 8 - 12. Older people won't enjoy it as much. That's all I can think of.

Format: Paperback
In this book, there are 43 male inventors detailed and only 3 females. That's inexcusable. How difficult would it be to provide more balance? It doesn't have to be artificially 50/50. I understand that for a long, long time, women just were not allowed opportunities to invent. But that doesn't make it okay to present a 43:3 imbalance in a book intended to inspire children. Where is the inspiration for budding female inventors? I am utterly disgusted by this book.
