Summary, etc.:
Both Thomas Edison and Henry Ford started off as insatiably curious tinkerers. Their curiosity led them to become inventors, but with very different results. As Edison invented hit after commercial hit, gaining fame and fortune, Henry struggled to make a single invention (an affordable car) work. Witnessing Thomas's glorious career from afar, a frustrated Henry wondered about the secret to his success. This little-known story is a fresh, kid-friendly way to show how Thomas Edison and Henry Ford grew up to be the most famous inventors in the world, and best friends, too.
