If my memory serves me (and it usually doesn't but - oh well) I believe this was a "Scholastic" book. You're giving away your age if you remember what that is. It must have been a pretty good book if I still remember it today (see above re: memory).

I remember reading this book on an airplane ride to go visit my grandmother, it is a really fun book and I recall thinking how cool it would be to be able to invent my own flying bicycle.

My daughter thought this was a really fun book. While she read anything and everything she particularly enjoyed books filled with imagination and invention.
