The spirited delivery of Susie Berneis enhances this historically based story—winner of a National Science Teachers Association award. As Henry Ford labored over his automobile invention, he was fascinated by Thomas Edison's successes in this book. Ford finally meets his hero and learns his "secret" as they begin a thirty-year friendship. Berneis ably portrays both men, including their years as inquisitive and sometimes mischievous children. Realistic sound effects, including pulsating electricity and vintage car sounds, add to the nostalgic atmosphere. Berneis's enthusiastic delivery, lively tone, and childlike questioning make for a fun listen. The book also offers listeners facts about Edison's electric pen and why the Tin Lizzie became an essential family member. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2016]
