In chapter-picture book style, Hedy and her Amazing Invention teaches kids about the pioneering scientific work and inspiring courage of Hedy Lamarr, the famous Hollywood actress who fought against old-fashioned parents, a domineering husband, prejudice, and stereotypes to become an accomplished inventor whose work helped pave the way for many of the communications technologies we enjoy today, from Wi-Fi to GPS to signal-blocking devices.

Through collage-work illustrations and accessible text, Wahl and Wallace provide context to the concept of Lamarr’s most famous invention with fun and ease.

This story is for anyone looking for an uplifting biography about a fearless 20th century woman who knew her worth and was determined to utilize all of her talents to make the world a better place.

The first book in Penny Candy’s Amazing Women series.
