Product Details

Praise

“[Franklin’s] foibles are described along with his achievements, painting a nuanced look at both his persona and the formative era in which he lived. Illustrations by Harper, who cut his artistic chops drawing comics, shine as contextual support for the more abstract ideas. By casting off the traditional chronological form of typical biographies, Kostyal creates an account of Franklin’s life and his philosophy that will invite young readers to make connections to their own lives and to the modern world.” — Booklist

“Harper works in an exaggerated cartoon style that balances the biographical and aspirational aspects of the book with big boses of physical comedy.” — Publisher’s Weekly

“VERDICT The combination of Franklin’s common sense wisdom and the fun imagery yields a good primer for personal edification.” – School Library Journal
