Publisher's Summary

Did you know that the ice cream sundae was invented because of a law forbidding the sale of ice cream on Sundays? Or that the first motorcycle was really just a tricycle with a motor? Would you believe that Mickey Mouse started out as a rabbit? Arranged in alphabetical order with anecdotal, fun-to-read text, this fascinating book is packed with the stories behind these and over 100 more inventions.

So Interesting!

The whole family enjoyed this book which is amazing even in itself! From kid to teen to husband these cool tid-bits about where common everyday things came from was fascinating. Each "sound bite" was long enough to get the point but short enough to keep our interest. It was a bit hard to warm up yo the narrators way of talking though, kind of a strange voice.
