So, who is Adam Kay?
Adam Kay is a former doctor who has written three million books and sold five copies. No, hang on – he’s written five books and sold three million copies.

His first book, This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor, was number-one for over a year and his first children’s book, Kay’s Anatomy, became the fastest-selling children’s non-fiction hardback of the decade. Adam adapted This is Going to Hurt as a BAFTA-winning comedy-drama series for the BBC. His most recent memoir, Undoctored: The Story of a Medic Who Ran Out of Patients was a Sunday Times number one bestseller in both hardback and paperback.

… And Henry Paker?
Henry Paker was once a little boy who did silly doodles in the margins of books. Now he is a grown man who does silly doodles in the middle of books. He is an award-winning comedian, writer and illustrator.

A bit about the book
Do you ever wonder where the stuff around you all came from? No, not from the shops. I mean, who had the amazing idea of making video games or the annoying idea of building a school?

In the latest laugh-out-loud book from the record-breaking Adam Kay and Henry Paker, you’ll learn about everything ever invented, from the daft to the disgusting to the downright dangerous. Kay’s Incredible Inventions is funny and factual and is destined to inspire the next generation of scientists and inventors.

Adam and Henry’s first two books, Kay’s Anatomy & Kay’s Marvellous Medicine were phenomenal best sellers and Kay’s Brilliant Brains was the most popular World Book Day title this year!


The perfect gift for 7-13 yr olds
