"Creatively designed and playfully illustrated...whimsical...[an] enlightening expedition." -- Publishers Weekly
"With sweetly illustrated histories of everything from safety pins and space hotels to endoscopes and sliced bread, INVENTED brings to mind the magic of Richard Scarry. The narrators' running commentary is smart and punny." -- Wired magazine
