This is an incredible book every child should have. Every parent knows that children have fantastic imaginations. This book goes further and tells children that they know that "children have the best ideas". Fully interactive, with quotes from children, great illustrations, and lots of room for their own inventions, this book is a total gem! My daughter has loved it! She loves inventing but I've never really known how best to encourage that and this book really helps. I will be buying this book as gifts for other children in the future. Totally fabulous!

5 stars
This is an amazing book. It is aimed at inspiring young inventors to think outside of the box and create weird and wonderful things. There are examples such as ladybird umbrellas and a toothbrush violin bow that really made us smile. It is also a great book for sparking young readers' creativity. It shows that anyone can have a great idea and encourages children to believe in themselves and the power of their imagination. There is lots of encouragement given throughout the book and an award page at the end of each section. There are some fun illustrations as well as photos of actual inventions that children have created. There is also lots of space for children to draw and create their own inventions. The book helps children change their fun ideas into a reality and we absolutely love it.

Absolutely fantastic book, my son loves inventing things and this book really helps with the creative process.  With great examples it shows that really any idea can be taken and made into something fabulous, all it needs is what every child has imagination!

With great illustrations, there is space for children to draw and create their own inventions which makes it a perfect book to take out and about as well.

Highly recommended.

5 stars
Such a creative book! Just like the idea behind it of creating your own inventions, this book is also a wonderful invention, where it goes through sections to try to make the kids think outside the box to create their own inventions. A way of doing this is by coming up with ideas, creating mind maps, thinking of who you might help with your invention, and this book stimulates just that: it invited kids to draw and write about their inventions in this book, so it's almost like a workshop for inventors! Great idea! Also, my son really hopes one of his inventions goes to the museum as well.

5 stars
My daughter liked the first page, where she got to write her name, age, things she likes to do etc, can also put a picture with it As well. She also really enjoyed the other pages where you had to fill things out, such as the future you section. I liked that it helped my daughter's creativity, and its great for different ages. She came up with some of her own inventions, but they were too extravagant to try and make a model of. I do think its mainly for the older children.
