Ben and Me: A New and Astonishing Life of Benjamin Franklin as Written by His Good Mouse Amos Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The true story of Ben Franklin, as told by his closest friend and advisor, Amos the mouse. According to Amos, it was really he who was responsible for Ben Franklin's inventions and discoveries.

Review:

"The remarkable life of old Ben Franklin is related with wit, warmth and wisdom by Amos, a mouse who has a way with words." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Ever wonder where inventors get their ideas? As it turns out, the great inventor Benjamin Franklin got his best ideas from a mouse named Amos! Funny, interesting and wise, this classic tale has been a favorite for generations. Once you've met Amos and read his account, you'll never think of Ben Franklin-or American history-quite the same way.

Explore this historical time period even further in this new edition of award-winning author Robert Lawson's classic tale, with additional bonus material, including a map of Ben Franklin's travels!
