    The Mostly True Story of His First Invention

    Starred review. "As inventive as Ben himself..." - Kirkus Reviews

    Starred Review. "...The alliterative, sibilant text is a rollicking read to share aloud with young students... The watercolor and ink artwork conveys joy and motion, with young Ben splashing into the water, gleefully trying out his fins... This is a fun introduction to one of the nation's founding fathers and a solid addition to collections needing a different perspective on this American icon." - School Library Journal
