The book also includes information on applying for a patent, entering invention contests, and starting an inventor's club.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
A neat book for inspiring a would-be inventor, it contains stories about real kids who have invented real things, like the prosthetic catch and throw device. There's a chapter on how to begin as well as resources on real invention contests, obtaining patents, a list of organizations that may be helpful in your quest and a glossary. It's minimally illustrated with photos and simple drawings, and the layout will appeal to youngsters.
