Ever wondered how to scald milk without it burning at the bottom of the pan? Or, how to turn a bedstead into a bike rack? Want to teach a kid basic knots? Or learn the secret of turning a watch into a compass?

Separated into seasons, and updated from the 1970 best-seller, this new version is a great resource for adults and kids alike.
