DESCRIPTION: This is a difficult book to categorize because the Wallace & Gromit characters are fiction and the technology described in this manual is a mixture of fact and imagination. Wallace & Gromit have been embraced by the young and their television appearances attract a large audience. They have to fire the imagination of the young and have succeeded. Translating that success into a Haynes manual has been achieved effectively. There is just the right combination of fun, nonsense, technology and entertainment to hold the attention of a young reader and fire the thought processes that develop knowledge, understanding and imagination. There are wacky inventions and things that are almost practical. The quality of illustration is excellent in a blend of fact and fiction. Some the most successful engineers and inventors started out with a book such as this that opened their minds to the possible. This is one of those entertainments that informs and creates the ability to think outside the established box. An ideal present that will be much enjoyed.
