Ben and Me: An Astonishing Life of Benjamin Franklin by His Good Mouse Amos
Author: Robert Lawson
Publisher: Little Brown
In Ben and Me, young readers will discover that while the good Mr. Franklin got considerable credit, many of his most important contributions really originated with Amos, a less-than-humble rodent. Oh sure, his manuscript was found by author-editor Robert Lawson and published first in 1939, but discerning readers ever since have figured that it's the mouse who's the fellow with the ... tale.
