Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4
What did you like about the book? Brief informative text and bright cartoon illustrations trace the invention of the pen, as it developed over the centuries. I like that there is humor amongst the information, through facial expressions and thought balloons. “Memory Game” at end.
Anything you didn’t like about it? There is no one of color represented in the entire series.
To whom would you recommend this book? Offer this to early graders interested in inventions.
Who should buy this book? Elementary school and public libraries
Where would you shelve it ? 609
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
