School Library Journal - 06/01/2020 PreS-Gr 3—In this third installment of a four-book series, the Invention Hunters, scientists who travel the world collecting its greatest inventions to put in their museum, travel to a school and encounter a young girl who attempts to showcase her extensive knowledge of how light works. However, these scientists remain clueless despite the girl's straightforward explanations of how a prism, magnifying glass, crayons, cameras, and TV screens work. Fortunately, readers do not. The goofy, confused Invention Hunters are a sharp contrast to the knowledgeable young student, who shares diagrams, interesting facts, an illustrated time line, and clear information. This makes the text amusing, appealing, and instructive. VERDICT This book is perfect for young readers who like their science with a smile.—Myra Zarnowski, City Univ. of New York - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
