Overview


The Klutz Book of Inventions lives at the intersection of comedy and product design. This 200 page catalog of never-before-seen contraptions is equal parts brilliant, useful, and ridiculous.  None of these inventions exist, but you’ll wish they did. A helium filled hide-a-bed for small apartments (hop out and it rises to the ceiling to open up floor space)? A tricycle-lawnmower combo (puts wasted play energy to work)?  A marshmallow candle cooker (don’t wait for a campfire to enjoy your favorite treat)? The ideas in this book are 100% genius with a Klutz twist, but it also teaches a little bit about the process so kids can dream up their own inventive inventions.

Comes with: 198 pages of wit and creativity unlike any the world has ever seen

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The 162 inventions featured in this tongue-in-cheek spiral-bound collection are demonstrated in color photographs with deadpan descriptions that might have been lifted from the Onion. Examples include the Salad Washer Showerhead, which enables simultaneous showering and lettuce washing; unsubtle Vent Pants, with a taillike neoprene tube providing "an outlet for digestive emissions of all types;" and Ice Plates, for people who hate to wash dishes ("all you need to do is turn on the hot water"). Though ludicrousness is the point, concepts like Anti-Ant Picnic Plates (staked four feet off the ground), TV Remote Dumbbell, and Ballcap Backscratcher seem frighteningly real in a world of Snuggies and Shake Weights. Ages 8�up. (Aug.)
