Full of energy and wit, Dotty Inventions mixes the fascinating origins of real items (ball point pen, windshield wiper, parachute, Frisbee, and Velcro) with fantastical ones (digital deck chairs, stereo umbrellas, edible scarves). The story revolves around Professor Dorothy Dabble, who sets off to London with her pet robot, Digby, to enter a competition for best invention. On their way, Digby uncovers the wacky stories behind several items. Does the Professor win the competition?
