About the Author:

Louise Spilsbury is an experienced author of nonfiction books for young people. Her writing covers a wide range of topics from animals and science to history and social studies.

From Booklist:

This volume from the Tales of Invention series features the telephone. Beginning with the first telegraph, the book discusses how sound travels, how speech is transmitted by wire, and how Alexander Graham Bell’s first telephones worked. Then the text quickly traces later technological developments, from transatlantic cables to early cell phones to the small, light, versatile models available today. Showing up clearly on the glossy pages, the many photographs and other illustrations include excellent labeled diagrams showing how early telephones worked and, less useful, a photo of a modern cell phone, which neither labels its external parts nor shows its internal workings. In addition to the continuous time line running along the bottom margins of the pages, an overarching double-page time line is appended along with a glossary and brief lists of books, Web sites, and places to visit. Not a necessary purchase but a colorful supplementary book for library collections. Grades 4-7. --Carolyn Phelan
