Overview

Let Sparky show you the way in this definitive guide to the 50 most important inventions of the last 1,000 years, from eyeglasses to the ever-present internet itself. The little lightning-bolt character talks children through the text, providing quips and comments on the science, context and historical development of technology (fancy getting burnt at the stake for heresy?) and the spreads are accompanied by a fantastic mix of photos and illustrations. A perfect addition to young readers' bookshelves.

Anne Rooney (author of Ticktock's Evolution) is a children's author specializing in accessible science titles. Her other recent publications include the Slipstream series for Franklin Watts (including Dangerous Earth), Mega Machine Record Breakers for Carlton.
