John Wallner has illustrated dozens of books for children, including David A. Alexandra Wallner has written and illustrated many biographies for children about remarkable people, including Lucy Maud Montgomery, Grandma Moses, Abigail Adams, and Beatrix Potter. She and her husband live in Mexico and often collaborate on their books.

This book is about Thomas Alva Edison and his life from childhood to death. I found this to be an extremely interesting biography of Thomas Edison. The stories of his childhood showed his keen and curious nature. He was born on February 11, 1847 in Milan Ohio. He has six siblings and his mother was a school teacher. Thomas was very curious and he would ask his parents a lot of questions every day. He got scarlet fever when he was eight and ended up death later in his life. The books was clear and had excellent pacing to keep a child and adult's interest. I learned many new and interesting facts about this great inventor. This is a very enjoyable biography for children.
