Great exploration of well-known inventors. Describes early to late life, including how they passed away. Engaging biographies of both the inventors and their inventions. The pictures are brilliant and will capture the very young audience, and the text will be of interest to a broad range of ages. A great jumping-off point for more detailed pursuits.
