Publisher's Description

Scientists have a reputation for being focused on their work—and maybe even dull. But take another look. Did you know that it’s believed Galileo was scolded by the Roman Inquisition for sassing his mom? That Isaac Newton loved to examine soap bubbles? That Albert Einstein loved to collect joke books, and that geneticist Barbara McClintock wore a Groucho Marx disguise in public? With juicy tidbits about everything from favorite foods to first loves, the subjects of Kathleen Krull and Kathryn Hewitt’s Lives of the Scientists: Experiments, Explosions (and What the Neighbors Thought) are revealed as creative, bold, sometimes eccentric—and anything but dull.

Editorial Reviews

"Mightily entertaining."
Kirkus

"This collective biography is perfectly suited to thematic research as well as to reading for pleasure."
Booklist

"Another wonderful addition to the series, detailing common knowledge and little-known facts about historical figures."
School Library Journal

"Yes! Krull and Hewitt are back with another of those books, the eighth entry in their delightful Lives of . . . series."
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Eight short, lively chapters introduce twenty influential scientists of the modern era. Krull emphasizes memorable, and often humorously indiosyncratic, character traits."
The Horn Book Magazine
