I just read this book and got thorouly board. I love inventions, and I loved the concepts, but the wording was to long, complicated, and quite frankly WIERD. Too much. Too little. Too odd. Too plain. Too fancy. Not a good book.

I bought this book at a lovely bookstore cafe thinking it would a really interesting to read with the kids.
It was disappointingly blah.
