Marvelous Mattie: How Margaret E. Knight Became an Inventor

Out of stock
Mattie Knight grew up in New England in the nineteenth century. After inheriting her father's toolbox, she began to sketch and make her own inventions: a kite for her brothers, sleds for the boys in town, and even a foot warmer for her widowed mother. Years later, working in the mills and factories, Margaret invented a revolutionary machine. But could a girl become a real inventor? Full-color illustrations. Author's note. Bibliography.
