Summary
Benjamin Franklin accomplished more in his 84 years than most others could do in two lifetimes! Some parts of his life were devoted to science and invention, such as the pulley system he invented to lock and unlock his bedroom door while lying in bed. However, he was also the sharp, witty writer and thinker who convinced the French government to back the revolutionaries in the English colonies. Through surprising historical facts and anecdotes, readers learn even more about Franklin than they would in a textbook. Full-color images engage readers with Franklin throughout his life while fun fact boxes give additional interesting details
