Description

About the Book: 51 Accidental Inventions That Changed The World

Did you know?

• Ice-lollies were invented when a little boy left a glass of soda water out on a chilly night.

• Potato chips were the result of a chef wanting to teach an annoying customer a lesson.

• And sandwiches were made when an Earl did not want to get his hands dirty while eating. This book is about the good stuff. The wonderful inventions we now cannot live without—from high-heels to tea-bags, pencils to x-rays, each story is an amazing mix of luck and a whole lot of perseverance and hard work. Imagine what our hot summers would be without ice-lolly? The horrors of never tasting potatochips! What would we do without our quick-fix Superglue? We hardly give a thought to the many little things we use every day. Dont you think its time we learnt about a few stories of origin? Where do they come from? Who invented them and how? Learn about 51 fascinating stories of inventions in a book blending adorable, simple illustrations with lively text bursting with facts. Who knows, you might accidentally come up with an invention one day too!
