Review quote

'A hands-on science lesson! - Lancashire Evening Post; 'Perfectly pitched for Key Stage 2, a mix of facts, humour and novelty flaps...This series is proof that the right non-fiction still sells' - The Bookseller; 'I absolutely loved the interactivity of this 'lift the flaps' book... What's more it is not just a parade of facts - we find out about people and the history behind the inventions, essential context to make the science interesting' - Popular Science; 'Famous inventions often come about for strange reasons and this book shows how things were invented, often by chance, such as the sticky burrs on a dog's coat that led to the introduction of velcro. Lift the flaps (over 60 of them) to reveal intricate drawings which show the hidden workings inside inventions. Engines, flying machines, electricity and more - all explained in easy-to-understand language' - Parents in Touch;
