No one could have imagined a more amazing character than the living, breathing Benjamin Franklin. He was everything from a ''soapmaker, candle dipper, and printer'' to a ''postmaster, political activist, community reformer, revolutionary, statesman, international diplomat, and first great citizen of a nation which he, as much or more than anyone, helped to create.''
Through her true-to-life paintings and storytelling along with a generous sampling of Franklin's own words, acclaimed children's author-illustrator Cheryl Harness lets you ''walk in his shoes'' as you discover just how truly remarkable Benjamin Franklin was.
