I like that this picture book biography shows the resilience of engineers, as well as the fact great inventions often are the result of failed attempts to make something else.

Thinking of a super soaker makes many think of their own childhood but little do people know that it was created by accident. This book explains how Lonnie Johnson was always tinkering with things, even from an early age. Thanks to his curiosity continuing throughout his childhood, it brought about great success in getting him a job at NASA. Great for all ages and way to show to never stop being curious and how some of the best inventions were created by a mistake.

Atinkering African-American boy grows up to become the inventor of a very popular toy.

Lonnie Johnson always tinkered with something. As a kid, he built rockets and launched them in the park amid a crowd of friends. (He even made the rocket’s fuel, which once caught fire in the kitchen. Oops.) As an adult he worked for NASA and helped to power the spacecraft Galileo as it explored Jupiter. But nothing is as memorable in the minds of kids as his most famous invention (to date): the Super-Soaker. While testing out a new cooling method for refrigerators, Johnson accidentally sprayed his entire bathroom, and the idea was born. However, the high-powered water gun was not an instant success. Barton shows the tenacity and dedication (and, sometimes, plain good timing) needed to prove ideas. From the initial blast of water that splashes the word “WHOOSH” across the page (and many pages after) to the gatefold that transforms into the Larami toy executives’ (tellingly, mostly white) reactions—“WOW!”—Tate plays up the pressurized-water imagery to the hilt. In a thoughtful author’s note, Barton explains how Johnson challenges the stereotypical white, Einstein-like vision of a scientist.

A delightfully child-friendly and painfully necessary diversification of the science field. (Picture book/biography. 4-8)

Children biography of Lonnie Johnson, we see the story of all the discouragement and all the successes. This is a great inclusion to a children's library, it allows them to be inspired to follow their dreams. ( )
