School Library Journal - Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA

"All the books provide some context for the invention, describe how it came into being, share a brief biography of the individual, and explain the impact of his creation. The straightforward writing uses short, concise sentences and is organized in a primarily chronological format. . . . These will be a strong addition to biography collections for the youngest readers." - School Library Journal
