    " I have never read a book by Jean Fritz that I was not absolutely delighted by! I read them all to my children, and I think I might have enjoyed them the most! Jean Fritz has found a delightful and entertaining way to teach children history. "

    " Very quick read (48 pages). Fritz does a very entertaining portrayal of Benjamin Franklin's life - written at a level for 2nd and 3rd graders to understand, but with enough information for middle school students to use as a point of research. Take a bow, Ms. Fritz. "

    " This was an interesting read. I sure wouldn't have wanted to Benjamin's wife, Debbie, though! I wouldn't want to be living in America while my husband was living in London for YEARS! "
