Before their experiments, inventions, and discoveries that changed the world, the world's most celebrated scientists had regular-kid problems. Stephen Hawking hated school, Jane Goodall got in trouble for bringing worms and snails into her house, and Neil deGrasse Tyson had to start a dog-walking business to save up money to buy a telescope. Illustrated with cartoons, this collection for readers 9 to 12 also tells the stories of Temple Grandin, Nikola Tesla, Ada Lovelace, Benjamin Franklin, Isaac Newton, Rosalind Franklin, Sally Ride, Rachel Carson, George Washington Carver, and Vera Rubin.
