Review:

“Life stories of inventors and their inventions will come to life in this highly readable graphic format. Reluctant readers will be drawn to the graphic novel-style illustrations and text bubbles. ” ―Library Media Connection

“Cousens draws on a comics artist's tool kit of furrowed brows, strong chins, craned necks, and dramatic perspectives to infuse his sharply drawn gallery of inventors at work with attention-grabbing intensity. Readers attuned to the visual punch of superhero comics and graphic novels will be drawn by the look of the pictures, and will likely stick around to meet some important-to-know figures in the history of science and technology. ” ―Booklist

“Each section offers a succinct yet thorough biography of the inventors. Striking graphic-novel-style art is a visual aid to draw readers into each setting and era. Life-link boxes connect the inventors to one another. In this way Gifford demonstrates how they influenced, or were influenced by, other great thinkers. With the appeal of a graphic novel, and clear language, this title will draw in reluctant readers and provide enough information for brief reports.” ―School Library Journal

“[An] accessible and fast-paced graphic novel. A good book for middle school students learning about inventions and needing quick facts or biographical information.” ―Voices of Youth Advocates
