Category Description for Scientist / Inventor Biographies:

Please also see our History/Geography Biographies section for more biographies of scientists at all reading levels.




If you have enjoyed Mike Venezia's lively Getting to Know... biographies of artists, composers and presidents, meet the newest series in the lineup. Here the author brings his signature mix of biographical information, interesting facts, period photographs of his subjects, and fun cartoons that explore the humorous aspects of their lives. Perhaps because scientists and inventors devote their lives to their interests, there is plenty of potentially funny material to enjoy here. I especially like the cartoons at the beginning of Thomas Edison which show the influence he had in areas of electricity and electronic technology. Although the first panel is completely dark (pre-electricity), the second is blazing with light and packed with televisions, music players, computers, and electronics. However, both feature two bored boys complaining that "there's nothing to do." 32 pgs each, pb. - Jess
