About the Author:

Robert E. Wells (Robert Ernest Wells) was born in Pasadena, CA in 1940. In the 90s, he began to put words and pictures into the form of children's books, and now in the new century he continues to do so. In 1993 he wrote and illustrated his first book, "Is a Blue Whale the Biggest Thing There is?". Other books include "What's Smaller Than a Pygmy Shrew?" (Outstanding Science Trade Book for Children, 1996), "What's Faster Than a Speeding Cheetah?", and his latest book, "Why Do Elephants Need the Sun?". Many of his books have been translated into various other languages.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4?A basic introduction to levers, wheels, and pulleys. As two children lift a lion, pull a panda, and deliver a basket of bananas to a baboon party, Wells offers explanations for how and why these simple machines work. The hand-lettered text identifies technical terms such as fulcrum, force, friction, and other such words (also included in a glossary). One might quibble with some of the statements, such as "Leverage adds force to your own strength." Also the pen-and-acrylic cartoons are mediocre in quality and are merely adequate at depicting the concepts. A great idea with a fair-to-middlin execution.?Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE
