Another fantabulous non-fiction book about a famous man, Nikola Tesla!

Nikola Tesla was always brought up in my physics classes but never discussed. We basically knew he did some physics and he did some cool things, but that was it. Even seeing non-fiction content in a picture book like this is delightful! I wish I would have had books like this back during my childhood years. Lucky for me, NetGalley has lots of fun children's books for me to get all nostalgic with and share with the world!

This book is all about science and the things Nikola Tesla discovered or played around with. Static from touching a cat was one interesting discovery, which just made me chuckle. Of course cats helped with science, it only makes sense! This distracted dreamer was always crafting up ideas, and eventually used his intelligence in incredible ways.

The illustrations are super cool and stand out. I really enjoyed them and want to see more fun books include ones like these!

Four out of five stars.

Thank you to NetGalley and Capstone Editions for providing me a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
