Ben the Inventor isn't really about inventing as such, but about Ben and his best friend, Jack, and the end of their friendship. Jack's mother just got a new job and the family will have to sell their house and move to Vancouver, a nearby city. This is a very sweet beginning chapter book about how the two boys come up with all kinds of plans to make the house unsaleable and thereby remain neighbors and friends forever.
Ben the Inventor by Robin Stevenson is a good introduction into the world of beginning chapter books and for those looking for a solid boy book. For readers in 2nd-4th.
