About this product
- DescriptionBoth Thomas Edison and Henry Ford started off as insatiably curious tinkerers. That curiosity led them to become inventors with very different results. As Edison invented hit after commercial hit, gaining fame and fortune, Henry struggled to make a single invention (an affordable car) work. Witnessing Thomas's glorious career from afar, a frustrated Henry wondered about the secret to his success. This little-kwn story is a fresh, kid-friendly way to show how Thomas Edison and Henry Ford grew up to be the most famous inventors in the world and best friends, too.

Suzanne lives near Chicago, where she writes from home on her favorite invention a laptop computer. Jennifer Black Reinhardt is fascinated by the stories behind old objects. While researching this book, she studied the Victorian clothing and furnishings in her collection of antique photographs--and fell in love with fancy borders.

She could not have illustrated this book without the invention of the lightbulb.
