Benjamin Franklin astonished the world of his day with his great fund of information, his brilliant decisions, and his fascinating inventions. According to this whimsical classic, Franklin's success, wit and invention were made possible by his closest friend and advisor—Amos mouse. At long last, Amos has taken pen in hand, or paw in this case, to set the record straight. His memoirs provide an entertaining and insightful view of Franklin going about his daily business—from his experiments with lightning to his presentation at the French Court. Perched in Franklin's furry cap, Amos has a vantage point envied by historians and enjoyed by listeners of all ages. Robert Lawson wrote and illustrated more than fifty books for children during his career. One of his most famous written works, Ben and Me introduces even the youngest listener to the delights of reliving a piece of American history.
