I really enjoyed this book as I love learning about history and inspirational people. My favourite person I read about in this book was Leonardo Da Vinci as I love art and thought his flying machine design was brilliant. I also liked reading about John Harrington and Thomas Crapper who were inventors of the first toilets. I would definitely recommend this book.

This is a non-fiction book. I love this book because I learned more about the scientists and their ground-breaking inventions. I would’ve recommended it to other people but it contains not real facts. They had written Al Jazari came from turkey although he actually came from Baghdad Iraq.

I love this book! It is about modern inventors who are still alive and inventors from a long time ago. It is very informative and interesting, explaining the inventions very well. The graphics are great too. Furthermore, my parents also love this book.

It was quite long I had to get a bit of help with some words. It was very interesting, I learnt about lots of different people making things to help people.

Inventions are great

Inventors is not my favourite book, but this would probably be because non-fiction isn’t my favourite either. It has lot’s of information about amazing people and awesome facts. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves science, building, facts, and ultimately, inventing.

It's amazing. I found out about inventors that are not so famous but equally important.
