Inspired by real-life events of a talented 10-year old inventor, this character-building story is packed with humour, educational elements and interesting facts.
Scott Sun is a talented young boy who develops inventions to solve real-life problems. His quest for a young inventors' award brings readers on a learning journey about creativity and innovation, patience and having a positive attitude towards school work. The book also deals with an issue which every child will face at some point in time: How do I react to the success of others when they have done better than me?
Unique to this book is the presence of an animated phablet, Witty Wikky, who engages readers with witty explanations. Kids are also encouraged to write to Wikky and share their views about various issues encountered by them. Wikky's unique way of engaging readers brings much delight.
This is a great book for students in the primary levels.
