I’ve read more books on Benjamin Franklin than on any other historical figure and it started with the thin little Story of Ben Franklin by Eve Merriam that I bought from Scholastic in third grade. I still have that book scrawled with the sloppy signature of my seven year old self, but minus the worn front cover. I’ve read many others since. He fascinates me. He's not a cartoon -- a jovial old man with a kite and a pocket of proverbs. I think I know the man pretty well and yet he was so multi-faceted that there seems to be something new to discover in every biography I read. This was an excellent book to start my lifelong learning about the man.
