If your kids are fed up with learning the names of kings and queens or dates of battles, then this is the history book for them!

This book only contains some of the most interesting inventions in history. No rubbish diagrams or grainy photos - just really cool facts, intriguing people and of course incredible inventions - all beautifully illustrated.

It includes: the invention of the wheel, ancient Chinese, Roman and Greek technological advances that have helped shape history, the bicycle, the motor car, steam engines, the motor engine, aircraft, satellites, lasers, computers, the World Wide Web and more.

We've curated for kids some of the best examples of inventions from history. The chronological order will help them get to grips with how and why one invention or discovery can lead to another. It also shows how humans have continually strived to improve their lives and the world by building on successes from the past, inspiring them to take leaps into the unknown or to reveal their genius to the world.

Designed to spark the interest of children aged 8+ studying history and STEM topics at key stage 2, the text is snappy and completely relevant, so boredom is not an option. The 4-book series, A Short Illustrated History, celebrates some of the best thinkers, scientists, mathematicians, inventors, engineers and creative geniuses the world has ever seen!
