Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The second title in Krull’s Giants of Science series meets, and perhaps even exceeds, expectations set by the debut, Leonardo da Vinci (BCCB 7/05). Krull and Newton are a match made in heaven: she with her flair for capturing the flaws and foibles of the mighty, and he with his razor-sharp mind and abysmal social skills.”—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review

“Outstanding. A multi-faceted portrait of a genius.”—School Library Journal, starred review
