"a true standout...bright, witty, informative and cleverly organized as the man himself." - The New York Times

A true Renaissance man, Benjamin Franklin was the first American celebrity. In pictures and text, master artist Robert Byrd documents Franklin's numerous and diverse accomplishments, from framing the Constitution to creating bifocals. The witty, wise, and endlessly curious Franklin is the perfect subject for Byrd's lively style and vibrant art. The pages pulse with facts, quotes, and captions, while the inventive design and intricately detailed illustrations make a striking tribute to the brilliant American.

We took a lot of books out on Ben Franklin and this one was the best, most comprehensive and clearest, plus presented in a fun and amusing way. Super helpful for our trip to Philadelphia and BEN! Our hero, what an amazing guy he was. We owe him a lot of thanks for all he did for our country. A great companion is to watch "Liberty Kids" video series available at the library on DVD

Ben Franklin—printer, author, inventor, Founding Father—and America’s first celebrity, whose inventions are still a part of our daily lives.
