The Magic School Bus meets The Way Things Work in this kid-friendly guide to understanding the basics of simple machines, that Kirkus dubbed "the love child of David Macaulay and Captain Underpants" -- now in paperback.

As Kirkus Reviews noted in a starred review, "Like the love child of David Macaulay and Captain Underpants, this routinely silly, genuinely intelligent deep dive into engineering basics leaves kids as informed as they are amused." Using simple explanations and diagrams and a heaping helping of humor, the Invention Hunters make the perfect companions for curious kids who are ready to learn about science, physics, history, and more.

In the first book of the series to be released in paperback, the Invention Hunters travel the globe in their flying museum collecting the world's greatest inventions! Today they've landed in a construction zone. These silly scientists think they've stumbled on incredible specimens of everything you'd never find at a building site, from roller skates and pogo sticks to swords and race cars. But what they really discover--with a kid as their guide--is how simple machines like pulleys, cranks, and levers are used to engineer tools ranging from jackhammers to dump trucks...and even toilets!
