The New York TimesTimeless Thomas is…almost entirely devoted to a series of opposing pages showing, on the one side, familiar modern technologies under the heading "Present Day" and, under "Edison's Lab" on the other, how Edison made what he did. Thanks to these adroit renderings, what could seem creaky 100-plus-year-old "Eureka!"s become relevant to young readers accustomed to instantaneous technology upgrades available on their iPhones…Barretta's approach minimizes the clutter, and his overall organization…makes the book especially user-friendly for young readers, to whom the dates won't mean much anyway. The lively illustrations, with spots of humor, help bring the more technical material down to child's-eye level.
