Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Green
A diplomat and inventor from before the time of photography may seem like a peculiar topic for the "Read and Discover Photo-Illustrated Biographies" series. It may in fact, be unusual, but the book is no less effective for it. T. M. Usel has drawn from the substantial body of early American artwork to provide the visual component of this brief biography. Benjamin Franklin's many careers (printer, writer, publisher, inventor, scientist, and diplomat) are covered in this slender book. Included is a list of "fast facts" about Franklin and a chronology of major events, as well as a glossary and index. Readers are sure to recognize many of Franklin's quotes accompanying the text. Those wanting to know more about this remarkable man will appreciate a list of further resources.
