Awesome Achievers in Technology: Super and Strange Facts about 12 Almost Famous History Makers



Everyone has heard the name Steve Jobs, but what about Nolan Bushnell--Jobs's boss before the invention of Apple, and the founder of the first major video game, Pong ? Many of the most relevant figures in tech history still remain in the shadows, but not any longer! From Alan Katz's new middle-grade series, Awesome Achievers in Technology gives kids a look behind-the-scenes at the inventors whose contributions to tech are personally relevant to their lives today. Each figure is given a traditional biography but is also subject to Katz's silliness, with humorous elements such as imagined poems, song lyrics, and diary entries by the not-so-famous figure accompanying each bio.

Kids will laugh as they learn about 12 current and historic unsung heroes of tech, and funny spot illustrations throughout add to the lighthearted and appreciative humor each figure receives. Reluctant readers and budding tech enthusiasts alike will delight in this imaginative and engaging introduction to a new series of laugh out loud biographies.
