Marconi Goes Wireless By Monica Kulling, illustrations by Richard Rudnicki Tundra Books, 32 pages, $20 NON-FICTION fans will enjoy this account of how Guglielmo Marconi invented wireless communication. Toronto writer Kulling adds to her “Great Idea” series of biographies in this easy-to-read description of how this Italian-born inventor experimented for years with his wireless telegraph, including sending messages for Queen Victoria to and from her son on a ship in the Atlantic Ocean. Finally, the first message sent across the ocean was received on Signal Hill, N.L., from Cornwall, England, on Dec. 12, 1901. Paintings by Halifax artist Rudnicki add to the book’s appeal. A second book in the Great Idea series, In the Bag, also by Kulling, tells the story of Margaret Knight, an American woman who invented the square-bottomed paper bag, along with 90 other items with over 20 patents. purposes. Korman’s books are especially popular with boys, and this one will probably be no exception. Since he published his first novel, It Can’t Be Happening at Macdonald Hall, after writing it as a Grade 8 project, Korman has written some 70 books for young people.
