“Ever had an idea so big it had a life of it’s own? Chris has. Follow along his adventure as he discovers that anything is possible when you have faith and determination.”

This was an awesome book. I received it for review from the author. I was doubtful that the book would live up the praise it was getting, especially since most of the praise was from children but I was wrong. This IS a good book for students in school to read when studying inventors and inventions. It easily leads to questions, discussion and class projects.

Although I’ve mentioned before that I don’t really like illustrations that look unprofessional, the ones in this book are different as they are specifically done by school children who’ve read the book and you can see more of them on her website too. I think that’s a great idea. There are illustrations but it is a chapter book, not a picture book. It’s geared for grades 4-6.

I’m glad I got a copy of this book to review.
