The illustrations play the starring role in this biography of Benjamin Franklin. Done in watercolor, gouache, ink, and colored pencil, readers will be transported back to Philadelphia, Boston, London, France, and the many locations Ben Franklin visited over his life. The conversational text narrates the events of his life from his early apprenticeship to his life as a diplomat to France and his works as an integral player in the new American country. References are made to his and his son's out-of-wedlock children. 47 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

No one could have thought up a more amazing character than the living, breathing Benjamin Franklin. He was everything from a "soapmaker, candle dipper, and printer" to a "postmaster, political activist, community reformer, revolutionary, statesman, international diplomat, and first great citizen of a nation which he, as much or more than anyone, helped to create."

Acclaimed children's author-illustrator Cheryl Harness through her true-to-life paintings and storytelling-style narrative, along with a generous sampling of Franklin's own words, lets you "walk in his shoes" as you discover just how truly remarkable Benjamin Franklin was.
