Review: Ben and Me: An Astonishing Life of Benjamin Franklin by His Good Mouse Amos

User Review  - Cynthia Egbert - Goodreads

A silly romp through Franklin's life as told from the point of view of Amos, the mouse who is really the brains behind all that Franklin did and said. I found this too silly for my taste but I can see where it would be a cute way to introduce smaller children to Benjamin Franklin. Read full review
