"Amy M. O'Quinn, who crafted a spectacular nonfiction book on Marie Curie, brings her impeccable research skills to a biography of inventor Nikola Tesla. Both the brilliant, eccentric man the fields in which he worked are complex, but O'Quinn brings them to life through photographs, fascinating drawings, and a host of resources, including experiments young inventors can try on their own. While this is a perfect choice for elementary and middle school readers who wish to go beyond a picture book biography, adults whose knowledge of Tesla is confined to spotting a shiny new car on the highway will find much to appreciate in this well-crafted, timely portrait. Highly recommended." Deborah Hopkinson, award-winning author of Who Was Charles Darwin? , The Great Trouble , and more
