Yes, it’s true! We’ve written a book!

The Little Inventors Handbook encourages budding inventors to think big and have fun with their imaginations... Just like our website, it’s packed full of wonderful, fun, practical and bonkers ideas to inspire children to become the inventors of tomorrow! With this super-charged step by step guide, they can explore and build up confidence in their own natural creativity.

In the book, Chief Inventor Dominic Wilcox takes Little Inventors through the process of coming up with new ideas, including problem-solving, ways to make objects better, and thinking about the ways people use things, and celebrates some of our favourite made inventions too.
