About the Author:

Writer Jill McLeod studied zoology before becoming a children's book writer and editor. Once an economist and a graphic designer respectively, illustrators Ralph Lazar and Lisa Swerling now own the cartoon licensing company Last Lemon Productions. Consultant Roger Bridgman was Curator of Communications at London's Science Museum for more than ten years, during which time he wrote DK's 1000 Inventions and Discoveries.

Review:

"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
