KIRKUS REVIEW

Fulton is the ideal subject for junior biography, for his career really began in his schooldays, when he started invention out of necessity. Pencils, paddle wheels, Roman candles -- these were a few things that electrified his schoolmates. From that time on, this versatile man -- portrait painter and inventor --had a fascinating career, on both sides of the ocean, and the list of his achievements makes dramatic copy.
