From Follett

Includes bibliographical references (pages 43-44). A brief biography of Serbian-American scientist Nikola Tesla, whose early fascination with electricity caused him to go on to invent alternating current and many devices that helped bring electricity to American households and, eventually, the rest of the world, at the turn of the twentieth century.

Full-Text Reviews
Horn Book Guide (Spring 2016)
This biography introduces an individual who knows what he wants to accomplish (an alternating current generator) but struggles to turn that idea into a tangible product. Stylized illustrations surround Tesla with scientific instruments while utility poles and wires crowd the New York City streets. The book's back matter is particularly strong. This is a "reformatted" edition of a picture book. Reading list, timeline. Bib., ind.
