KIRKUS REVIEW

Hugely entertaining (and enlightening) mouse-eye view of the career of Benjamin Franklin. Nobody but Robert Lawson could have done it successfully -- this re-interpretation of his public and private life, as seen by a mouse who was his friend. And he has made delightful pen and ink illustrations. (Fantasy/historical fiction. 7-12)
