    It was full of made-up, fantastical, inventions. I'm pretty sure one of the scenes was set in a swimming pool / aquarium / underwater, and it had a things like robotic crabs or a submarine with lots of appendages. (I seem to remember tiles, as if in a swimming pool, and a window with brass fittings around it.)

    There may have also been a scene set in a bedroom, with Heath Robinsion style gadgets to wake people up.

    The ilustrations were colour line drawings. I think the book was a hardback. This would have been early-ish 80s, so it could have been from that period or even released in the late 70s.

    Any ideas?

    @Phil-McCrack That's a sci-fi film starring Dennis Quaid and Lou Gosst Jr. I ordered the DVD the other day.

    @Grax This is a book about a hungry catterpillar, not an inventive catterpillar.
