Booklist - Selenia Paz

"In this biography of electrical engineer and inventor Nikola Tesla, readers will find themselves exploring Tesla’s childhood, considering the influences that sparked his imagination at a young age, and following him as he worked toward finding a solution to the scientific questions that most occupied his mind. Vibrant illustrations create a luminous setting for Tesla’s hardships as he struggles to convince those around him of the benefits of alternating currents, forcing him to continuously set aside his ideas. . . . An interesting and inspiring addition to STEM collections." - Booklist
