Can you image a world with no light bulbs, cameras or telephones? All this was made possible by Mr. Thomas Edison. Take the journey through this man's life. This a motivational story of a mis-behaived young boy's life to his great and many acheivements.

What a great book. My son who is in kindergarten was studying people who changed the world and he chose Thomas Edison. After reading the book he really understood why Thomas Edison is so important. He took it to school for the teacher to read. The class loved it. Great buy.
