Illustrated by Scott Pearson
Ivan I. Dear is no ordinary boy.
He is an inventor, solving problems with his Number 8 wire,
His long nose pliers and his cutting pliers.
With a snip snip of his pliers and a twist twist of his wrist,
Ivan solves the problem – just like that.
However, sometimes things can go haywire
and unforeseen problems occur.
Librarian: Very popular – the giggling from the children is very infectious!
Preschool teacher: This is the most requested book in our school. The children have started coming up with their own inventions for problem – like Ivan I. Dear with varying results!!!
