Book Overview

The greatest discoveries are made outside the classroom Learn all about mistakes that changed the world with this collection of the strange stories behind everyday inventions It's no accident that you'll love this book

SANDWICHES came about when an English earl was too busy gambling to eat his meal and needed to keep one hand free. POTATO CHIPS were first cooked by a chef who was furious when a customer complained that his fried potatoes weren't thin enough. Coca-Cola, Silly Putty, and X rays have fascinating stories behind them too Their unusual tales, and many more, along with hilarious cartoons and weird, amazing facts, make up this fun-filled book about everyday items that had surprisingly haphazard beginnings.

And don't miss Eat Your Words about the fascinating language of food

A splendid book that is as informative as it is entertaining . . . a gem. --Booklist, Starred Review
