Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Readers learn that some dice were loaded in ancient Egypt; that baseball caps evolved from imitations of Civil War military hats; that flyswatters must have holes to be effective; that some inventions might have flopped without a push in the public-relations department. Such stories are well-suited to sharing. Kirkus Reviews
Jones's titles convey cohesive ideas about the importance of accidental discoveries. School Library Journal
