Product Description


Lots of fanciful young imaginations will thoroughly enjoy the strange-but-true elements encompassed within the story.

(School Librarian)

From the Back Cover

Have you ever wondered who invented voice-active socks, the Frisbee or central heating for birdcages? It was Professor Dotty Dabble of course! One of her amazing ideas is bound to win the National Science Museum's award. But her robot sidekick, Digby, is not so sure that all of these amazing ideas belong to the professor and he sets out to discover whose inventions they REALLY are!

“Quirky characters and a skill for the common touch give this the Yah-hurray! factor that will keep children coming back again and again.”

The Independent
