Mientras trataba de crear un sistema de enfriamiento para refrigeradores, Lonnie Johnson inventó sin quererlo el mecanismo de este emblemático juguete. Cuando era niño le encantaban los cohetes, los robots, todo tipo de inventos y, sobre todo, la creatividad. Gracias a su pasión y persistencia por resolver problemas, llegó a ser ingeniero y a trabajar para la NASA. Pero dio el gran salto a la fama cuando inventó la Súper Pistola de Agua. Su historia es presentada aquí por Chris Barton, autor de éxitos de ventas del New York Times, e ilustrada por Don Tate ¸ ganador de numerosos premios.
Now in Spanish, the true story of how childhood favorite and summer staple, the Super Soaker, was an unexpected invention.
Trying to create a new cooling system for refrigerators, inventor Lonnie Johnson instead created the mechanics for an iconic toy. As a kid, Lonnie Johnson loved rockets, robots, inventions, and creativity. With persistence and a passion for problem solving, he became an engineer and worked for NASA. But it is his invention of the Super Soaker water gun that has made his most memorable splash with kids and adults. Captured by New York Times best-selling author Chris Barton and award-winning illustrator Don Tate.
