Curious and inventive, young Ben Franklin prefers to read and fly his kite while swimming. His father won't let him be a sailor, and every other job he tries is boring, but each time he fails to find a profession, he takes some important bit of knowledge with him. Inspired by Franklin's classic autobiography, Michael J. Rosen's wry tale for readers 5 to 8 captures Ben's spirit in playful language, while Matt Tavares's illustrations follow Ben from the workbench to the water in vivid detail.
