As author Cheryl Harness points out, no one could have thought up a more amazing character than the living, breathing Benjamin Franklin. He was everything from a "soap maker, candle dipper, and printer" to a "postmaster, political activist, community reformer, revolutionary, statesman, international diplomat, and first great citizen of a nation which he, as much or more than anyone, helped to create." Readers quickly learn that the story of this Founding Father is quite different from the likes of Washington and Jefferson. The tenth child of a candle maker and his wife, Benjamin's formal education ended at an early age, but his quest for knowledge never did. Readers see how the hard-knock days of his youth gave him a very down-to-earth outlook on life, which he shared in his Poor Richard's Almanack and which inspired practical inventions, such as the Franklin stove and bifocals. His experiments with electricity earned him the title Dr. Franklin and brought him fame, especially in Europe where he was a sought-after guest in the parlors of kings and queens. Readers will discover how his French connections helped America win the Revolutionary War and become an independent nation.
