As a young boy, Thomas Alva Edison always wanted to know the answer to the question "Why?" At the age of ten, he set up his first scientific laboratory in the basement of his home. Soon after, he sold candy on a train so he could buy chemicals for another laboratory he'd set up in the baggage car. He was always wondering and experimenting. Thomas Edison grew up to become a brilliant inventor. He began his amazing career improving the telegraph, and went on to invent the light bulb, motion pictures, and the phonograph. He installed New York City's first electrical system, and he made improvements in almost every means of communication in use today. Here is the lively story of the genius who forever changed life in the twentieth century - and beyond.

One day in 1882, Thomas Edison flipped a switch that lit up lower Manhattan with incandescent light and changed the way people live ever after. The electric light bulb was only one of thousands of Edison's inventions, which include the phonograph and the kinetoscope, an early precursor to the movie camera. As a boy, observing a robin catch a worm and then take flight, he fed a playmate a mixture of worms and water to see if she could fly! Here's an accessible, appealing biography with 100 black-and-white illustrations.
