So You Want to Be an Inventor?

Written by Judith St. George, illustrated by David Small

Go for it! You just might be the next Thomas Edison… or Eli Whitney… or Josephine Cochran. Who was she, you ask? Inventor of the first modern dishwasher!

Women have been inventors, you see. So have presidents and farmers, dreamers and loners, copycats and daredevils. Some of their inventions you may know well, like the radio or the printing press. Some are so bizarre, they never made it—like the haircutting helmet or eyeglasses for chickens!

“Small’s lively, fluid caricatures make for a winning collaboration from the duo who brought us So You Want to Be President?”
