Following the success of The Cracking Contraptions Manual , Wallace has pulled the dust sheets off a further 20 of his ingenious inventions, from the Mind Manipulation-O-Matic and Bun Vac 6000 ('Curse of the Were Rabbit') to the Jumbo Generator and Steam Chair ('World of Inventions'). Cracking Contraptions 2 again features superbly detailed cutaway drawings by Graham Bleathman, informative technical descriptions and colour photographs throughout.
