Product Detail:By Margaret Knight
Illustrated by David Parkins

In 1850, Margaret Knight was different from most girls growing up in America. She loved to work with tools to fashion things with wood—people claimed she made the best kites and sleds in town! By the age of twelve, Margaret was working at the local cotton mill alongside her two older brothers. One day a shuttle came loose from a giant loom and flew across the room, injuring a young worker. This inspired here to invent a stop-motion device - the first of her many inventions. Best known for designing a machine that made the flat bottom paper bag, Margaret Knight became a woman of astounding accomplishments.

Honor book of the Simon Wiesenthal Center's and Museum of Tolerance 2012 “Once Upon a World” Book Award in the Young Reader category.
