Inspired by real-life events of a talented 10-year old inventor.
A character-building story packed with humour, educational elements and interesting facts.
Scott Sun is a talented young boy who develops inventions to solve real-life problems. His quest for a young inventors’ award brings readers on a learning journey about creativity, innovation, patience and having a positive attitude towards school work.
The book also deals with an issue which every child will face at some point in time: How do I react to the success of others when they have done better than me?
Unique to this book is the presence of Witty Wikky, an animated phablet who engages readers with witty explanations and encourages them to write their views on issues which they may face.
