Children's Picture Books: Marvelous Machines and Imaginative Inventions

These aren’t your typical machines or inventions. Some might call them fantastic, others might call them science fiction. One thing’s for sure: these machines are kooky, creative, and fun!

This list is reserved for picture books and storybooks, which are not the same as graphic novels or other books (i.e. easy readers, chapter books) with scattered pictures or illustrations in them. As a rule of thumb, think "Green Eggs and Ham" when considering picture books to add to this list.
