Did you know that an eighth-grader from New Jersey invented the snowboard? Or that the inventor of the trampoline demonstrated his invention by bouncing with a kangaroo? Would you believe that the first effective vacuum cleaner was the size of a refrigerator? This book is packed with fifty incredible stories about how things we now take for granted came to be. Perfect for trivia fans of all ages, The Kid Who Invented the Trampoline has a hip retro look and is illustrated with fabulous old-time advertisements and photos. You'll never look at a toilet or a TV the same way again!
