Gr 3-6-Text and artwork are interesting and informative, and will hold readers' attention. The book is illustrated with many reproductions, drawings, and photos, mostly in black and white. However, there is a plethora of recent biographies of the subject available for young readers. Tom L. Matthews's Always Inventing (National Geographic, 1999) ranks first due to its many excellent photos and more detailed text. Leonard Everett Fisher's Alexander Graham Bell (Atheneum, 1999) is a fine edition, illustrated by the author. Add Durrett's title to your collection if you need another book about this inventor.-Kate Kohlbeck, Randall School, Waukesha, WI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
