Product description

Book Description

At school, Thomas Edison's teachers think he is stupid. How wrong they are! Instead he becomes one of the greatest inventors of his day, creating the electric light bulb and an early record player, to name but two. Ages 5+. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
