              Meet the masterminds behind the greatest inventions in history and marvel at their achievements with this non-fiction book for kids written by Professor Robert Winston. Step into Leonardo da Vinci's workshop, relax on board Hideo Shima's speedy bullet train, and join movie star H...edy Lamarr to bounce ideas around in between takes. Inventors looks at the towering achievements of more than 50 inventors in great detail. The stories are as unusual as they are unique. From Lizzie Magie, who came up with the idea for the game Monopoly, but had it stolen, to the ancient Turkish polymath Ismail al-Jazari, who decided the best way to power a clock was with a model elephant, to Richard Turere, the Maasai inventor who created a lion-scaring device when he was just 13 years old - the inventors of this book have all used buckets-full of creativity to find ways to improve our world. These groundbreaking inventions range from the very earliest discoveries, to modern-day breakthroughs in science, food, transport, technology, toys, and more. Each page is packed with jaw-dropping facts, with every inventor's achievements written as a story. Professor Robert Winston's beautiful descriptions of the inventors' lives are brought to life through stunning watercolour illustrations by Jessamy Hawke and fantastic photography highlights the detail of their designs. Incredible hand-painted diagrams reveal the intricacies of a robotic arm, the first plane, and the printing press, so that young readers can see close-up how these amazing machines work. The inventors come from all walks of life and parts of the world, making this the perfect book for every budding inventor.
