Description
 
No matter how busy he was, Ben Franklin always found time to try out new ideas. Such as a remote-control lock (so he could stay in bed and lock his door), a rocking chair (which powered a fan), and a windmill (to turn his meat roaster). Aside from being a man of ideas, he was an ambassador to England, a printer, an almanac maker, a politician, and even a vegetarian (for a time). “A humorous yet detailed biography of one of America’s greatest founding fathers.” “An enjoyable read-aloud.” A New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year, and a Notable Children’s Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies. Ages 8-11. Full-color illustrations.
