The Inventor’s Secret
From the time they were young, both Thomas Edison and Henry Ford were filled with curiosity. Early on, Thomas’s experiments often ended in explosions and fire. Henry’s childhood experiments went similarly awry, leaving him with broken toys and flooded fields.
As the boys grew older, Edison began to see success with his inventions while Ford continued to struggle. Henry couldn’t help but wonder what Thomas’s secret was—how did he create so many successful inventions?
Henry finally gets the chance of a lifetime to show his gas-powered vehicle plans to Thomas Edison himself. Will Henry learn the secret to Thomas’s success?
Along with Jennifer Black Reinhardt’s lively, detailed illustrations, Suzanne Slade tells this little-known story of friendship, curiosity, and perseverance.
